Quote:Awesome photos Jeff,I got to see a whole bunch of these and photos while at Eds shop. He showed them to me and Dan S. Ed said the telescope is somewhere in CA.Shane, I think think this is the Bronze 812 you were refereeing to. Your telescope looks great.. And it is nice to have the original paint. The paint on mine was trashed or I would have left it Yeller...... (aveman
