I havent participated much in the off-topic fora, but I saw this thread and had to drop in these pictures.  My Dad received this ashtray from Applied Health Physics Inc., sometime in the early 60's, possibly late 50's.

 

Of particular note is the CAUTION RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL label on the back......

 

It's been sitting on a shelf for 50 plus years....hopefully its not still active!

I've been watching them.  All overpriced.  However, the highest priced one is in fact a 1939 New York World's Fair edition, the others are the reissues.

It will still be radioactive. The glazed used Uranium to get the orange color.  It is commonly called Fiesta ware. https://www.orau.org...ucts/fiesta.htm

Here`s a image of mine, along with a couple other shelf sitters :grin:

 

I was 6 years old when Forbidden Planet came out. We, my brothers and I, had an original Robbie The Robot, similar to the one in the pic but a back body. Around 1965 I gave a lot of my old toys to Toys for Tots.

 

My mother was a certifiable horder and packrat. I really wish  she had hoarded my 1950-60 baseball cards, my science fiction themed anything. Instead, she kept a 10 foot stack of Family Circle magazines (worth, well, you have pay someone to haul them away) and bags an bags full of 1950's and 1960' aluminum TV dinner trays.

Now I know I'll be in trouble with this post...

 

It's not a telescope, but it is a classic and it is Mars-related.  AND it's a timepiece, so I can use it to help me find Mars in the night sky...
