Back in the '80s, a member of our local club had a 6" F/8 Newtonian reflector by Cal-Astro.
This scope delivered the most amazingly good images we'd ever seen in a 6" Newt.
Just wondering if anyone out there has a Cal-Astro scope?
I've never seen hide nor hair of another one...

Curiously,



Clive.

I think Leland Barnes owned Cal Astro. He attended a number of the eary Riverside (California) Telescope Makers' Conferences.
