Reminds me of an old astronomer's bumper sticker, which had a drawing of a telescope and the words, "SIZE MATTERS!"

I am sorry to say that it does not live up to expectations. Star tests have revealed in focus aberrations.

I need to get it bench tested in a month or so..Ronchi first and then Interferometry. I hope it will pass and it's just old oil.

Wow! Nice scope.

Looking at the scam ad was tough. $2000. I wanted to bid even knowing it was a scam.

I tested it with a null tester and found it has a bad edge. Only the last 1 or 2 tenths of an inch is turned. A mask should make a big difference. More.work is obviously needed...
