This is a lament mainly for the astrophotography people.
Today I rang two astro supply places in Sydney to ask about Baader Film for the upcoming Transit of Venus.
I didn't like their replies:
1. From BinTel: Our supplier said they're not supplying it any more!!!
2. From Astro-Optical Supplies: We choose not to stock it!!!
So where do I get it from now without importing it?
Does anybody know???
And I've tried to kick myself for not going past BinTel earlier and getting some. Even that doesn't work!
Woe! Alack and Alas! And a bit of teeth-gnashing.
