Back to work on the SkyScope. 
The brass has finally been restored, though not sealed (need to wait until warmer weather). 
Next, going to work on the tube itself, and fix the wobbly eyepiece tube. I plan on using black shoe polish to restore part of the tube.

Shoe polish is a surprisingly good stain for wood and other materials.
