Am I alone but who else loves the smell when you find a MINT scope, OR pair of Binoculars? Especially those made from Japan from the later 50's-early1980's
I dearly miss my 11X80 Celestrons.. Beautifully
She had excellent optics, but when I opened the case it smelled like my Grandmothers musty closet when she passed!
I was SO VERY lucky to have a complete 76mm F-15 complete in the case with the original Wooden Leg Green cloth tie down straps, AND the factory anti humidity packs, As soon as I cracked that wooden case that beautiful smell filled my room.
Am I the only crazy person here that , and the smell Of a brand New Book?
I have lost the name of who I bought my late 50's Mayflower, from. That was some person's life long dream back in 58, It still kicked the
Hind end of my 60's Questar! On top of that I was gifted an A/C drive motor for her. It just shows the heart and generosity of some of the members here!
PS: sorry for being away for a couple years I apologize. I did not do it on purpose...
