I've decided: One of my winter projects is to restore the above mentioned scope to working order. A few questions, though: Where (in Ohio) could I get the primary re-aluminized? Would it be cheaper just to replace the primary? Where could I get replacement counter-weights? They knida disappeared, don't really want to go into that. And lastly, where could I find a nice set of 5" setting circles? Any and all information would be appreciated. WW

For recoating a mirror, contact AlM in the optics shop on this forum. A couple of people have had their mirrors done by him and seem well pleased.
