Quote:Doug, what sort of load are you carrying on the uni 24?
Quote:I plan on using the Planet for my soon to arrive used DM-6 with 8" extension. It will carry a MN-66 , NP-127 or something a little bigger in the future. Are the double leg locks highly recommended? Not going to go crazy with the loads.
My little Agatha. You left too soon. My furry friends, past and present, are always with me.
Quote:I recently received a package from Berlebach with my name and address on it but I did not order anything. Took me about a week to find the person that was suppose to receive that package and he was in a neighboring city so he drove over and picked it up. Somehow when the package was passed off to the USPS in the US they replaced the original address label with one for me. I have never ordered anything from Berlebach before so I don't know why the USPS would change the label to my name and address. They actually shipped the guy two packages at the same time and one of them did arrive on time at his house. I do order a lot of astronomy gear and maybe they keep records of that kind of stuff at the USPS, so I guess whenever the USPS can't figure out where a piece of astronomy gear goes they are just going to send it to me. I could sure use a 6" APO if anyone at the USPS is reading this

Quote: That was me, Lane, and thanks again for tracking me down!!!!I purchased a UNI-18 and they shipped the tripod in one parcel and the spreader tray in another. They both delivered to the airport in Frankfurt, via DHL, and I presume DHL flew them to the US. However, that's where things fell apart. The tripod went to New York and the tray went to Chicago. After customs, USPS handled both and managed to foul up the tray delivery. Somehow, Lane received it at his home, 30 miles away. But, he was nice enough to contact Belebach and find my email address. What a great guy! Anyway, it's not DHL all the way. I don't recall even having the opportunity to select such an option.Jerry
