It's funny, I actually first talked to Bart some 25, 30 years ago, when he was involved with roto-molding, IIRC, about possibly mass-producing my fiberglass Dob design. At the time I didn't know he was interested in antique scopes. He pokes his head in here every once in a while, great guy!
And he's the expert. I really have no special interest in antiques, my interest is much more narrow, but I can appreciate the workmanship in both the originals and the restorations. Thanks for another fascinating thread, Peter.
