Love my RV-6, waaaaay more stable that a tripod, wish they still made pier mounts. Also hands down the best 6 inch glass I've ever looked through. Wouldn't trade it for the world!

Sometime in 1981 According to Company 7 which ties in with the dates for a change in position given on this page on John Krewalk Jr's site, the Krewalks being the owners of Criterion prior to the sale to the Bushnell division of B&L.

After reading that second link I think I can see why it went out of business so quickly. Mr. Krewalk was a very busy guy. Maybe too busy.

Just got a chance to read Gil's piece. Great background information. He's a wonderful asset to the astronomy community.
