There is a nice article with photos on Astronomics' new store and showroom in the local daily paper today:

Nice. Hopefully that will generate some local interest.

Indeed. My father (who still resides about an hour away from you) clipped it out and sent it to me. You and your dad are looking great. If you're curious of my interest, your dad sold my dad my first scope in 1984. Dad has always spoken very highly of the help your dad gave him.

Congratulations on the new store. I look forward to stopping in on my next trip back.

EDIT: Clearly, I thought the Mike above who posted this was Mike Bieler, of Astronomics. I realized too late that wasn't the case.

Nope a different Mike though I live about 30 minutes away in OKC. The OKC Astro Club will be taking part in the sidewalk star party surrounding Astronomics grand opening in September. Have visited Astronomics many times through the years and they are always friendly and helpful. Those who can should try to make it in September . . .
