Very handsome scopes
While you may wax poetic about that fine brass refractor it seems like a new owner can cherish it as you have …….
I remember meeting Al Nagler in New Britain Connecticut at Central Connecticut University for an Astro fest Neaf like event in spring of 1984. There were very few participants and he explained that it was so overcrowded the year before they decided not to advertise much..... I did not know much then and I did not know him but we spent a couple of hours chatting He had the 4 inch Brass Renaissance with him and it was superb We talked about the gorgeous refractor and Halley's comet a year away. I complained that President Reagan would not spend the money to have a NASA vehicle go by the comet because it would cost One billion dollars. I commented that he just ordered 100 B 1 bombers at that price and we could have had 99 bombers and a NASA vehicle comet flyby and Mr. Nagler said he agreed with me. I still have the pictures I took of him and I have one of his lovely brass refractor.....
Those TV scopes have a way of finding you again down the road you may find yourself with another four inch TV scope some day I know I did just saying
BTW Love the reference to the Red Violin
