Quote:This is a restored Classic Mount designed and built by Mr. Maynard Clark sometime in the 70's. This 8" f/8 Newtonian won a Merit Award at RTMC in 1980 for Excellent Craftsmanship. See my sig for the story.The legs and pier column were made by Cave Optical Co, the rest is all original. It is mostly aluminum, highly polished.
