I found this summary of Kirk Roger's AP equipment purchases over a decade amusing and also a bit scary...I've already spent too much!

We are all sick people / equipment junkies....

Since taking my first peek through my first telescope - it was the 6th of December 2011 - I now retain 6 scopes in the arsenal, scopes # 32 to #37 inclusive :lol::screwy:

At least I have my Gear Acquisition Syndrome under control ;) as Lewis will attest.....

Nick, check out the Takitis thread on the other site :lol:

Was that a joke? Yes, that is a joke.

You are unstoppable. And now you even have the wife partaking in the illness (seeing where she works, you may be able to be admitted...just sayin').

Try Matt and I... although, I think I have surpassed Ian Fry now on sales :P (is that actually possible?)

Matt has probably owned more Tak refractors <4" than I've owned in general :lol:

I have been given an ultimatum by the Finance Manager..... :sadeyes:
Though I did manage to sneak a TSA120 into the house on Saturday.....
I now find that I have to pay for it by clearing out the excess floating in the cupboards..... It is amazing how astro stuff collects in drawers and cabinets....
Maybe it breeds.... :shrug:

Do you NEED to sell me the AZ-EQ6...yes, yes indeedly do

What you need is a draw of Tak adapters and another with various Ethos', let them breed and intermingle ;)
