Kittie says, "Is this one of those 'bird' scopes?  Maybe they're inside"

Haha, I have two cats. And, amazingly, they haven't shown any interest in my telescopes, yet!

Admitting you have a problem is the first step.

The first step toward recovery is admitting to yourself that you have a problem. The next step toward recovery is admitting to others that you have a problem. With this cry for help, I think you are ready for step three. :lol:

Good news: medicine does not confirm the existence of the telescope problem. Only living rooms tend to be too small. This is an architectural, not medical problem.

By the way - should the Japanese not start paying for the storage of their antiques?

Unless you don't consider it to be a problem, of course!

They usually wait until they have some expensive pharmaceutical remedy with a catchy name and advertising campaign ready to go before they do that.

 

But I agree with you. I  prefer to call it inadequate storage syndrome and treat the house!

It should be noted that THS (telescope hoarding syndrome) cannot be diagnosed unless more than 50% of the scopes have not been used in the last 5 years.
