I agree with you however........"Time is Money" to some and they're willing to pay to not have to wait.
Some say "Astro-Gear, Meh, I can live without it" while others say "It's only money".........
No matter what side you're on, the "Market" dictates and now our opinions.
But thats always been there, normal inflation, not get the other guy, a fellow astronomer and it is happening and I am not talking dealers trying to make a go of it ! There is no ‘ Time is Money ‘ in a hobby, its called impatience, its called I better get it before the next guy even though what I have is great ! I say ‘ its only money ‘ myself but sometimes, ....... ? The ‘ Market ‘ dictates only because it knows these types of buyers are out there, that could all be changed quite easily if ....... ! Those just willing to pay no matter what are in a different category, they have always done that, for them nothing has changed, I have been there in the past I know, until the light bulb comes on. And this is my opinion from experience, from watching it happen ! The term ‘ a fair price ‘ has been stroked from the dictionary, most times ! PS: And its worse in Canada !
