Quote:Just a question; Did Teeter get that gov't small business grant he put in for? Hope so, this country can use more quality telescope shops. I'd pay extra for quality eyepieces stamped "Made in USA" on them...at least it wouldn't take 3+ (and waiting) months and still no eyepieces...

Quote:Thanks, all. I'm confident from the feedback that Rob will fashion an outstanding instrument.I hope Rob wins the grant also. Wasn't it a 'grant' rather than a loan?Joe
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
