SUG'S Other Scope

How would you feel about being stuck on a shelf in the garage in a canvas bag waiting and waiting to be taken out. Whats up with this? My owner says he"loves me to death", purchased numerous items for me like a fancy pier/tripod to mount me on. A really awesome 2" diagonal and eyepiece set just for me to enjoy. Last year he even upgraded my focuser so I'm smoother than ever! Why am I not a more active part of the SUG outreach effort? I show the sky like no other! People love to see and look through me -what is wrong with this picture! Can anyone help me?

SUGGY is very quite about all of this.

Dear G.O.R - SUGGY and I have had some very special times together. I knew the first time he opened my box that I had one excited astronomer owner that would use and enjoy me! One of the more memorable was the big 1999 sunspot outbreak where we observed our first white light flare and enjoyed changing penumbra patterns throughout the day. So many views of Jupiter moon transits, lunar features, double stars, star clusters have graced their photons down my tube into SUG's eager eye. Oh my new focuser -what a gift! I love my yellow surveyors tripod and backyard pier too. I am glad your owner is using you!

But still I sit on the shelf.......

Dear Pronto, I thought we could be friends. Friends help friends and your not helping my cause! Do I sense a little smug "tude" for the small dude up north? Are your color corrected lenses inflating your ego? Or are your just "green" with envy cause I got a bigger eyeball?

Dear NSG, I am sorry that I and my fellow lens based optical enhancers are not on your list of favorites. Did you have a bad experience with one of my cousins? Please do not bang your head to hard - you have a waiting public that needs you. I do like coffee so I can't be that bad!

Yes, that little twirp can be smug thinking it's all that and more. Me, the SCT and the Antares like to kick him around a bit and put him in his place. Yeah, he's got "ED" and all that, but we remind him daily that he's "only a 70". But overall, he's a good little scope to be with. Just has a little attitude problem.

Hey G.O.R - thanks for keeping Tonto Pronto under your tripod legs! I'm sure he can be a blast to hang out with but to kick a fellow scope when he is shelved is low...........
