A bunch of books coming
      #5742670 - 03/19/13 11:07 AM

I had to throw away my two set of NSOG. They had gotten wet a while back and had gotten mold. The mold was to a point where the pages were sticking together.

So I ordered a new set of volumes 1 and 2 plus the volume 3. Also got The Dobsonian Telescope by Kriege and Barry, U2000 All Sky Edition and the plastic overlays for it.

Anyway I will get a write up done when they get here.

Sorry to hear about the moisture issue, but Willmann-Bell Inc publishing to the rescue. Look forward to your thoughts on the new members to your book collection there

Preston, if you bought those books directly from Willman-Bell, I can pretty much guarantee that they will arrive in perfect condition. Their packaging is practically bullet-proof. They're one vendor that I don't fret about what condition my order is going to arrive in.

Rex,
I am a big fan of William Bell, have ordered from them several times!

Jim,
No worries on the older NSOGs I chunked. They were probably 15 years old.

I am seriously wanting to move up in aperture, not sure if I will build or buy.
