More RTMC scopes. A cool refractor, Binocular Newtonian and a Schiefspiegler.

That red refractor was built by Patrick Wiggins, I believe it is an 8" Brandt.  He donated it to our club and it is now housed in our observatory in Stansbury, UT.

That's a BigFoot, isn't it, Keith?  I haven't seen one of those in decades.

You're right!  waytogo.gif  (your prize is "in the mail") wink.gif The Bigfoot mount was designed by Pierre Schwaar (hope I spelled his name right).
