So it seems. I ordered mine from our Sponsor on Jan. 26.
A post on the Yahoo user group is to the effect that orders placed by the end of Jan should be cleared by the end of March.

No mount . . . lots of new toys to try . . . 14mm Meade S4000 UWA, ES 20mm 100º both on hand and the ES 11mm and 30mm 82º as well as an Orion binoviewer on order.

Woe is me! :bawling:

Wow, Dawziecat, your list of new toys is going to make it hard for you to get your ration of sympathy! :grin:

I'm still in the 'save, wait, and pray for $$$' phase. Still, considering some of the wait times mount makers like AP and Losmandy have subjected folks to in the past, 3 months doesn't seem like much.
In any case, I'll look forward to it as much as you (almost!) so I can hear how the new Gemini works! :jump:

I'm sure you'll forget the anguish of the wait.., once is arrives ;)
