BCH is one of those rare works where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. It's an entity; it has a soul.

Loved this set. I visited his grave in the military cemetery on Point Loma, San Diego.

I just ordered Portable Newtonian Telescopes by Highe and Telescopes, Eyepieces, And Astrographs by Smith, Ceragioli, and Berry from Willman-Bell as a belated Christmas gift to myself. Thanks Rex, you da man! :yay:
