Anyone know how long it takes for articles to get approved? I think the forum regulars might really enjoy it.

Can you post snippets of your experiences there? We'd love to hear about them!

Very much looking forward to your article. If you post a few paragraphs here I'm sure you'll find some eager readers. I'd be curious about how things were inside Criterion during the change of owners and the West Hartford vs. East Hartford facilities.

Got the Cloudy Nights E-mail confirmation this morning, so I'm optimistic about publication. The group here was my target audience - so this is the best place for posting of the piece.

I actually used a Golden Pyramid Tripod for my C-8 once it was out of the observatory. I really like it (only issues I had was lat adj, but a turnbuckle handles that and a spreader that broke one spur and I replaced it with one from a Celestron tripod when I got back into things.) and recently picked up another in very good condition.
Can't wait to see the article.

Or at least PM a Moderator to nudge the process along.
I love the Index card story...

I have only one Criterion product - a 4" Dynascope. While produced before Gil's time there, I can almost imagine that the shop didn't change much.
Thanks for the story, Gil!
