Tachyon.. Tachyon.. I have a feeling that i'm gona be barred from the various star parties from now... until the 15incher shows up... or perhaps the 30incher??? Is this for real?? 30"?

Henceforth, your expectations for smaller scopes will be unfulfilled, and you are doomed to wander from star party to star party to hunt for the elusive 'better' scope than what you had seen on your first night out.
I have warned beginners NEVER, EVER to go near anything larger than an 8-incher, but some would not listen!
But fear not, although there is no cure, soon, there will be a new 15-incher (check the other thread on the community project) to satisfy your yearnings. Until then, I suggest the solution is to visit Hubble-Site and browse the pictures.
You have been warned!
