Holiday cards from Rolando I love it. Come to think of it I think we do get holidays cards from AP I got one last year.

Here is my 6" f/5 Jaegers on a Light Speed Telescopes "Wagon" mount (Charles Ridell) set up for a night of mirth and merriment.

Just came across this image I made a few years back. Alas, I had to sell the TV-85 to finance my Teeter in 2010, but I thought it would be fun to post anyway.

Paul Do you get holiday cards from Rolando?
Awesome collection. Seems like you might a a bit of an APsession........
like my kids say, Its all good




I did get a card this year. Marj Christen called me an enthusiast, not a collector, because I use everything I have. Obsessed for sure.

Wonderful Scopes and pictures, everyone!

Makes me wish night time would hurry and get here so I can go look at the heavens in my own refractor tonight

It is well modestly that I post here mine: Vixen Halley 70/400 on a Vixen mount. It is an achromatic scope I got in 1990. Last week, I got her little brother, a maksutov-mangin-cassegrain reflector scope: Paralux MMC 80

Binojunky,

No, not a Mont Blanc, just a cheap look-alike. Wish it was real. I always wanted to own one. Thanks for the compliment.
