The graph suggests a psych ceiling at 95 cents, with nearly 3 attempts at it, if it goes above 95 it might then not come back under it for a while as the ceiling might become the new floor for a while.
will be interesting to see what happens.
Might have time to order a few goodies for the observatory!
I'm after more Pentax XW ep's. I check US prices regularly and the difference between last week's price and this week's price is only $10 ($340 as opposed to now $330). I'm no expert at understanding currency trends or associated lingo, just hoping it gets a bit cheaper - as the shipping cost of an extra $40 drags the price back up.
Also the Televue Panoptic is sitting at $240 + dlvry. You can buy them here for $260, when I looked not so long ago. Prices are from OPT.
Talk about some deals out there (if you don't include shipping) found a QHY9-C at https://www.ccd-labs.com/eshop/index.php?cPath=21 for 1080 Euro which works out to $1500 at present exchange rates ... thats $500 saving on QHY9-C from Australia and given the QHY8 pro is the same price that is $1000 saving on Astro Shop here in OZ
Paraphrasing this report : "The dollar could reach parity or more in the next few weeks or months" LINK
Wouldn't it be nice to wake up one morning and see the exchange rate was 1 AUD = 2 USD. It would only need to stay at that level long enough for all our orders to be placed online and payment sent. We could all have some very nice "Made in the USA" equipment under the christmas tree - Teve Vue, AstroPhysics, Bisque, FLI, SBIG, Planewave...
Well, ya can't wait for ever, I took the gamble and paid for my pending US gear and UK gear in full...I got 94.5 cents and 60.6p respectively..not bad considering ...if the rates get better..?..DOH for me and for those who wait...but if it gets worse...phew! . Parity one day you say?..hmm?, I hope so but too much of a gamble, may be waiting for ever, more likely to drop I recon?
