The night sky is the canvas....
My optics are the brush....
The Milky Way is the masterpiece
reductio ad absurdum of epistomology is solipsism....
My eyepieces are made from the waste product of exploding stars.

Quote:Yes, it's sad to see all these guys go. Jerry was great, and I loved the store. Luckily Brian and Brady at KW are in the same category. A bit of a longer drive from the GTA, but well worth it for that level of quality customer service.Best,Ed L.
