and the hole scope from KOSMOS catalogue 1979. You'll see that my finder is not original !

Kind regards, Michael

Thanks, Michael! Your pier looks fine, and the scope is truly beautiful. I don't want to wish you any ill, but if you're feeling old, consider me a young astronomer!

Michael,

The 60 mm scope is awesome. The mount looks Royal Astro (ish) the azimuth circle is nice and seldom seen.

And isn't having at least one scope (your 90mm) that you know you will hang with till the end just the best feeling? I have yet to figure out what my last scope would be, but it is a good exercise. In the event of a house fire I would literally be toast trying to decide which scope to save.
