Everything on backorder...so frustrating!

Is this normal? Or a result of COVID issues? Maybe lots of people are getting into the hobby to pass the time?
Anyone else frustrated by this?

Definitely a result of Covid. China had the same issue we did a while back. Businesses closed down, shipping came to a stand-still. They're starting to catch up now, but it will be a while before the flow of goods is anywhere back to normal.

I guess there is a positive side for those of us wanting to grab some used items...eventually the dam will break and second hand gear will become readily available as folks finally get their orders filled and need to clean house!
But the wait is just as annoying.

It seems like all the online stores got shipments of the ZWO stuff yesterday and today..... including the ASIAIR pro.
I picked one up and also a ZWO camera to go with it.

Indeed COVID issue.
I succeeded in getting a CEM60, from TS a while ago. It had been out of stock for weeks even months The moment is was availlable i bouhgt one right a way and indeed , a couple of weeks after arriving , it was again out of stock...
Seems that TS struggles too , many items are out of stock , and arrivals of new gear is delayed...
This COVID thing really is becoming a disaster...in many ways
