A Little Recovery Time is Required

When my camera tumbled two metres off the top of my tripod about a week ago and knocked the lens so far out of alignment I could comfortably blame my poor night time focusing ability on the lens itself, I at least was thankful for having just a few more nights of tours left, and an expensive repair to the lens that would be a tax write-off a week or two from then. It now appears the lens wasn't the only casualty, and the camera body may need a trip into service to cure some battery connection errors. A pair of astronomy binoculars have become a little stiff and may make it back to Zeiss over the summer, and perhaps we all just need some warm weather and a rest, the likes of which isn't far off now.
