I ran into an old customer that I had not seen in a few years last week.
He had called me up a few years ago, and asked if I would buy his telescope asap, because
he had lost his job and needed the money to pay some bills.
Broke up with his wife as well.
When it rains it pours.
Of course, while he went through that tough time things worked out nicely for him in the end.
He moved north of Barrie, (2 hours north of Toronto) and landed a teaching position at a local college.
Right place at the right time!
He met another lovely woman and now things are rolling along nicely.
I'm telling you this, because there is a lesson here.
The hobby of astronomy is one that requires patience and time.
Two things that many people seem to be short of these days. The enjoyment from using your
telescope comes from the challenges you might face in doing so.
Just keep that in mind, next time something does not go quite the way you expect it too.
Don't get frustrated, anyone can do that. Walk away for a few minutes, and then come back
and try again.

PS I'm very happy to report that we just received our first shipment of the New Celestron Nexstar
Evolution 9.25" telescope. It's the one I've been waiting for along with our staff member Mike.
It's going to be quite exciting playing with it this weekend coming up.
