    That scope looks amazing! I especialy like the story behind it.
    Wow what a nice scope !! It's rarity makes my C 10 an almost every day find :) Vern
    Very very nice. Did I see this scope back in the 50's-60's in S&T.
    I believe so. The Vegas were being made at least as early as the early 60's and while I wasn't active in the field at that time (I was 6 in 1960), I have heard that they did advertise in S&T. I'd love to have a copy of one of their ads if you ever run across one. Tom

    Sweet sweet scope. I'm jealous. Have you ever written an article or review about this scope? Regards, MikeG
    Mike, Look for a little info in the upcoming issue of that new telescope mag that's coming out. I was at WSP with it and was interviewed. Tom
    Never grow tired admiring this, thanks for the pic!
    I sure would love to buy it as soon as possible
