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:
Thanks, Bill! I am also honored in knowing that my 6" Jeagers build has touched others. Actually, outside of paying tribute to those individuals special in my life, my greatest aspiration is to inspire others. I will get a photo up soon.

You aren't very observant Greju. Perhaps your eyesight is failing? There is a Unitron 114 in the top picture, front row, third from the left.
Uh,,,I don't know about that. Looks like an SPI to me.

"You aren't very observant Greju"
Well, that might be a stretch considering the age of the picture. :confused:But I did once work for a governmental agency but it was not the CIA.

Well not me, but my club - the Pontchartrain Astronomy Society in New Orleans. The photo dates from an early "in-town" star party in the early 1960's. Things sure have changed in 50+ years!
Thanks for sharing some PAS history, Barry! It would be great to come home and join in on one of y'alls present day observing sessions. On my next trip to NOLA, I will try to schedule appropriately. What a homecoming that would make.

Its a Unitron. Get over it.
Terra is correct and I believe what you see on the focuser end of that #114 Unitron is a Unihex.

I see my old Edmunds 3" f/10. Can you?? Mike
All the way to the left in the top photo? I had one too.

No no it's a 3" f/10 Space Conqueror! To bad the picture looks like a frame from some inner city 7-11 security video! Mike
The pictures were copies from old newspaper clippings in our club archives. I will see if I can take better ones. Maybe I can focus in on specific areas (like the Unitron #114). If others have similar old photos from their club's history those would be great to see!
