Quote:Lets hope that the 2012 turns out to be a better year for the amateur astronomy community. But I am also to fault, this year my hobby budget is down, in 2011 I spent over $2k (for a Lunt 60MM Scope and other goodies), this year I was way under. I wonder how many of us spent less this year?
Quote:I spent over $3K at NEAF ......But then, imagers have always been the "high end", while visual observers get their toys for less (glass envy notwithstanding). ... Jeff
