Hi,

 

Could anyone with one of those complete collections of S&T on disk be so kind to copy and send me a copy of "Mizar and Alcor as a Septuple System" article from Sky and Telescope  Aug. 1964.

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

Wow...in the Sept 64 edition the 4" Unitron on Alt-Az mount Model 150 was $465, which with inflation is $3,700 in today's money.  Imagine a 4" achromat for $3700!

Dluders,

I just wanted to drop you a special thanks for that link. I'll spend many hours looking over those old issues of S&T.
