Re: Insurance for AP Mounts

M Hambrick

A replacement cost insurance policy for your astronomical equipment makes sense, and most insurance companies will gladly let you inflate the value of the articles being insured because it lets them charge higher premiums. The problem is that if something were to happen to your Astro-Physics equipment and you had to file a claim, the chances of actually being able to replace any of the equipment would be pretty slim. Although the older, larger A-P scopes (e.g., 180 EDT) are very valuable, they can never be replaced. Equipment that is still in production (mounts and the smaller scopes) can still be had, but the waitlist for these items is so long that it is unrealistic to think that they could be replaced either.

The moral: Take good care of your A-P gear.
