Equipment Theft

A good friend of mine made the journey from Singapore to WA to observe and photograph the solar eclipse a few days ago.

After the eclipse, he did some more imaging then on 29 Apr he went to the airport in Perth to pickup his family that had just arrived in order to take a short vacation with them until 6 May. Having collected his family, he travelled to Fremantle for lunch for 1 hour and on return to his car, the rear window was smashed in and 3 bags stolen. One of those bags contains the lens component to a Astro-Physics 92mm f6.5 Stowaway and a William Optics GT102.

The serial number of the AP lens is 92665-4-501
So if either of these lenses pop up for sale here, there or anywhere, dob this person in for theft.

I hope the gear is recovered. Nothing sucks more than having stuff nicked.

I presume the Freeo cops have been notified? Might pay to keep an eye on places like Gumtree and any local CashConvertors.

Would it be worth making a post in the classifieds re this? If mods allow
