20762TMB News - LZOS
- Dec 1, 2004The lost lens shipment finally turned up, after talking
with my customs clearance agent for half the afternoon.
She had to trace every stop from Russia (we don't do it
this way normally, Markus ships the lenses from Germany),
and it normally takes 7 to 9 days from Germany to Cleveland,
but it has been 16 days already, and I have to tell you I
was really starting to worry (Bob's 7" and Tim's 9" lens
is in this shipment, among other TMB lenses).
She could not say when they will be able to load the
truck and get the shipment to my shop, but I will try
and find out tomorrow. If something can go wrong, it
probably will. One good thing is that LZOS double wood
crates the lenses, and with an oversized outer box,
and special packing material, I have no worries about
shipping damage. My problem will be getting that monster
crate off the truck!
BTW, where is everybody? I know Tim is at work, working
16 hour days, and Norm is going to the hospital (I hope
you feel better Norm), so they can't post.
Jim and all other imagers, the Moon is in a great position
for imaging, so let's see some images, if you have the skies
and time for it. Thanks.
