Quote:Wow Tom, I can't believe how much you've accomplished is such a short time. Seems like you just got it home and you are well on your way to having it all restored. I'm impressed.
Quote:Wow, that is another beauty! What a gorgeous classic Newt to go with your Cass. You have an amazing collection Tom.

Quote:heat the tag with a hair dryer to soften the glue. I bet the tag will come right off
Quote:The focuser has the first of two name tags from the original owner Don Trombino. I will remove the name tag and maybe add it back after painting, or a replica if the tag is fragile.

Quote: With 40mm eyepiece you would be at 22x, in the 76mm scope. Even that might be a bit much for a finder but it is great guide scope for imaging. Did you get the original Cave 7x50mm finder with the scope ? The one at the local high school has two of them on both the sides of the scope since in certain positions of the mount, if there was just one it would be in a difficult position to use. - Dave
