I knew I'd seen my recently purchased telescope somewhere and I found it in Richard Berry's 1985 book.
A little on Richard Berry,
Pretty cool scope I found on Facebook a few miles from my house.
Her hubbie has Alzheimer's and is no longer interested in astronomy. I offered my help, maybe a smaller scope but
she said no that part of his life is over.
I have some photos of his telescope, he built it pretty much to Mr. Berry's published plans.
I'd love to know who made the mirror but I don't want to release it from the cell it's siliconed in place as Mr. Berry instructed. She said
it came from a commercial source but the name escapes her.
It's in kinda ruff condition, but I feel obligated to restore the scope, she wanted it to go to a good home.
So that is what I will do, preserve the patina and repair the scrapes and bruises.
