Hello {!firstname},

   I was up first thing this morning and out in the front yard watering all the many plants we have.

This hot weather as of late,  has really made them all quite thirsty.

    Of course, when I get to the strawberry plants, I always stop to eat a couple, and boy do they taste good!

If you haven't been out to get some local strawberries from a farmers market or grocery store where
you live, you are missing a  real "taste of heaven".

Not like the usual crap from the supermarkets out of season, which have very little taste to them|
and are imported from faraway places, like Chile or whatever.

    Then it was off to our local library, here on Manitoulin island which sadly has more books on astrology than
astronomy, so I am doing my best to change that situation by donating a new book on the subject of astronomy every time I visit.

 The one I dropped off today was one for young readers, and published by the RASC of Canada
called "Mary Lou's first Telescope".

      In fact the book is actually written about one of our customers who many years ago got her first telescope
and I later on sold her a really nice Meade 8 inch SCT  and that was over 20 years ago, and she is still using
that trusty telescope today.

        Over the years, telescope models have changed and come and go.

Right now we have one of the "tried and true" models on sale: The Meade LX200 Series.


If you want a telescope that can do it all, then the LX200 is worth considering.

Clear Skies,

Ray Khan
