Wow! What a day! We had no idea that so many attendees would be coming through our booth! It was non-stop!

Here's a picture of the display and those who contributed to making it such a success!

left to right:

Bruce (bendab): Tasco 15TE
Gerald (gelkin): 3" & 2" Unitrons, 8" Criterion
Preston (Preston Smith): 4" Unitron, 6" Criterion, 60mm Monolux, Questar, Edmund Voyager
Mark (Napersky): 90mm Sears
Tom (bierbelly): 8" Vega
Peter (peter scherff): Tele Vue MPT, Coulter 100, Satellite Scopes
Jon (PiSigma): 10" Cave, 8" Celestron

Second Row:

Peter (pbealo) 6" Fecker, Porter Garden Scope

Not in Picture:

Alan (Gone caving): 1878 William Short Gregorian


It was a great display. I'd seen many of those models, including the Porter Garden Scope, before but, as far as I can recall, Saturday was the first time that I laid eyes on a Tele Vue MPT.

You know that Garden Scope really intrigued me. I spent a lot of time looking that that design, and thought it was just such a cool idea - such an elegant piece!
