Looks like 4 for 4 this year on public star party rain-outs. At least I assume so.
I don't know. It's raining here, that's for sure. I never received my "upgrade"
telescope from Meade, and they stopped returning email from me after breaking
their promise. Again. So, now I don't own a telescope at all anymore. I had to stop
using the CloudyNights forums, because everytime I say anything negative at all
about Meade, it gets deleted. It doesn't matter that my story is true. I will voluntarily
stop posting there. I don't really have any reason to anymore. Meade must have the
absolute worst customer service of any company in any business ever on the entire
planet. Add that to the fact that they put their presumably well trusted name on
absolute crap, and that equals big disappointment and frustration. I wonder if that
is the norm for Astronomy manufacturers and sellers? I don't want to find out the
hard way anymore, that's for sure. I'll keep my money for now, or spend a little on
one of my other hobbies. Oh, any observations along with this rant?
This morning when I went walking at 5:00 AM, I saw a planet low in the South.
I don't know which one, I didn't bother to figure it out. It was possibly Jupiter.
Sandy_Gazer - out.
