Congratulations, I can not help but to admire your and Yuti's
courage in leaving this beauty in the hands of UPS, if it were me I
would have personally driven all the way to Colorado to pick up the
white beauty in person.
I never underestimate the UPS handling and treatment of fragile
products, personally I had some painful experiences with these
folks, I recently ordered some cast iron Kohler bathroom lavatories,
when the darn things arrived some of the hard glazed coatings were
chipped off, despite double crating and all types of heavy plastic
wrappings, I still can not figure out how did they manage to do
that, simply impressive.
Glad your scope survived safely.
