Wow, I finally broke down and joined the other site(A____ Mart)-to see what all the "fuss" was about, and maybe pick up a vintage scope that might not of been advertised on this site.  What a disappointment!!!  My hats off to Cloudy Nightsbow.gif bow.gif bow.gif . The whole lay out just -to me is a train wreck- compared to the Cloudy Nights site. One would think that the A____Mart site was just developed-a day ago. Very amateurish.  I wish I could get my money back.  I, now have even a greater respect for the family here at Cloudy Nights!  I feel guilty that I strayed- for just a minute. Oh well, live and learn.  Thanks, Cloudy Nights!

I have been an upstanding member of both sites for over 20 years.  I am thankful for the free membership here. I find both sites to be useful.

I have a little difficulty understanding the principle of paying to have the right to buy ...

That's interesting.  What is better on A'mart than on CN, if you don't mind me asking?

I share the kudos to cloudy nights, clearly the best anywhere! I DO, however, find the other side useful as well.

Getting locked soon.  Discussions of CN vs. AM is not allowed for good reason. This is not a classics discussion - I don't think - not sure how old Herb is!  

Trends exist, the people decide, things move on.  No better or worse, just certainly wayy way different in operation. Opinions exist, not for this venue, things move on.

Astromart generally has more stuff and the nominal membership fee keeps the riffraff out. It's a good model for added security in transactions. I support at a ~higher level~ and have enjoyed at least $10K of savings, over the years. Highly recommended! If you're not stingy, it's a great value!  Tom
