Whenever I have come into large sums of money in my life, I always put half of it aside to spend on fast cars and the pursuit of loose women.
I put aside the other half to spend frivolously.

Quote:GM-8 may be in my future but not my here-and-now. I don't think they can be had for less than a $1000. Polaris might be an option, though sounds like I would be on the cusp of weight with my refractor, especially if loaded with binoviewer and 2 EPs.I don't hear any love for the Orion SVP at this point...
