Stealing an Idea(OK borrowing a good one)

Posted By David Williams

Great idea. Now do you have any idea where I can find some clear skies. Early last week was beautiful but I wasn't prepared. Thursday I finally have everything together and adjusted and it has beenovercast ever since.

Source for cubed foam inserts

Posted By David Williams

Not that I am aware. Ocassionaly I have some but not right now. I use
www.foamsbymail.com. Nice selection of foams and easy to deal with. They are in MI.

I pick mine up or get the minimum for free shipping so I am not sure about their shipping charges.

One thing I thought I would mention since I have used both the cubes and the regular foam. I use cross-linked high density polyethelene. Easy to cut and you can get a near perfect fit plus it does not absorb moisture.

Bogen 3021 deal?

Posted By David Williams

My thanks to all you helpful astromarters who offered to take this albatross off my hands. Since the original post I did a little investigating and see that the new price of this tripod with the 3126 head, not a three way but a micro fluid video head is about $215. I probably wont be selling it for $22.50 and splitting postage. 8)

I didn't get so much as a Thank-You from my wife.

These guys just don't get it. She is not happy because you don't have a nice big newt to round out the collection.
get a nice 24" Dob or something like that. Only then will she be satisfied.

Turns out I didn't get the job. I am a bit shocked since I was assured just 3 days ago I was the leading candidate and the interviews were over.

Oh well, back to looking for another new job. 8(

Jon,

you should probably see Floyds recent thread in the equipment forum.
