I now consider the original C14 a near classic. As you can see I've done quite a few modifications, but nothing major.

Your white C14 is gorgeous. The mount and scope combo look superb. Best views of Jupiter for me have been thru a C14.

That 5" unitron looks awesome with that 3" guidescope. It looks like it needs an observatory.

I could lend it to Gary for an "indefinite" time. He could load up his scopes in a normal sedan or small van and drive on up to Omaha. Then proceed with a photo session with his "new" aquisition and then a few evenings with the 6" and 10" viewing planets and doubles then head on back home to live with a lie that noone would be the wiser of. :lol: :lol: :lol: Mike

I have noticed that most of the photos submitted to this thread do not have a picture of "you" along with the classic scope(s). What is wrong with everyone's camera in that the images of all the owners some how melt away very quickly only leaving the scope(s)? Perplexing!

I posted enough of me and my scopes. So here is our good Friend Johnny Hardwick at last years CSPAMP :bow:
He has large hands so his TAK 152 looks somewhat dwarfed when he is clutching it in his strange observing style. :grin:

Hi All ! There are good reasons to post with your scope. Heaven forbid !! If someone breaks into your home and steals your equipment and if it ends up in a pawn shop somewhere or in a police department's lost and found section,it would make for very easy identification to retrieve it if you had such a picture. You homeowners all you need do is have such a picture to show your insurance adjuster if your house suffers a break-in or from damage from fire or water. Makes good sense, everyone.!!! Gary

...let alone if there is a natural disaster that destroys everything you own! That way you can have offsite images to provide to your insurance company; God forbid.

BTW - I just finished building my 6" f/10 Jaegers GJD refractor. I will most certainly be in the shot with this scope when it is posted.

Mel, I've been lurking on the ATM forum and have felt honored to watch the design and build.

What a classic tribute:bow:

Can't wait for the :photo:
