Very nicely equipped.  I think I remember that one (been going to every RTMC since 1979).  There is no such thing as a first place merit award, though.  They're all created equal.

That's a nice rig.

They may be the best eyepieces of all time but I would have a stroke trying to use them in the dark.

I sent the email I mentioned to a friend who lives in Flagstaff.  Not the "seller".  I didn't want to pressure my friend into dealing with the seller if he wasn't interested himself.

Whomever gets the blank optics lot, contact me.  I'm interested in a few of them, might help offset your cost.

My friend says he's willing, but since he's not a member I had to send him a screen cap of the ad (and told him it's free to sign up here!).  I haven't heard back yet.

Whoever that deceased optician was, I'm sure he'd be happy that his glass ended up with telescope nerds rather than the sanitation department.

Hasn't Bob been trying to sell that for a year now?  Maybe someone could pick it up at NEAF?

 

Glad I have all the parts for one.  Come on, retirement!
