Oh sure, I could be one of those timid souls who takes pictures of squirrels. But, I choose another path. I'm willing to go eyeball to eyeball with one of North America's most dangerous wild animals. They've been known to chase presidents and I won't even discuss their sharp pointy teeth. I'd just traversed this area of bush with our hound dog five minutes before. So, this beast is the last thing I expected to see when I hopped into our all-terrain utility vehicle. But, there I was. I was petrified. I was so glad to be separated from this thing by the windshield.
I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.
