Anyone have info on Cave 16" Cassegrains. Only a few made in the 60's and 70's. Thanks, Craig Betzina, Strasburg Observatory, CO

Remember what many thought was a scam in NJ for a new one in the box for $100?

That's right. That was real chore for Tom. Great thread. How could I forget.  Plenty of pics of one in that thread.

My friend died from catching birds. Back in 1973.

I don't think Chuck has one.  He had a 12.5" Newt that he sold to George.  I have corresponded with another 16" Cass owner, but privately.  I don't know if he wants to go public.

Did Tom finish that restoration?

 

I understand he got very ill because of an infection from the bird dung.
