I'm not lifting that 20" SCT. I wonder if one is still around somewhere?

 

 

lol.gif.... Who would?

 

 

Nobody I know could lift that scope.  foreheadslap.gif

 

 

I wouldn't put it past Neil. He's moved some pretty big scopes.

Taking of "lifting" one of these beasts - wasn't one removed from its' rightful owner's way back in time & never recovered..? I seem to remember reading about it back when... confused1.gif

Don’t forget about the Mellotron used by the Beatles in “Strawberry Fields”.

It really is.  Got to love the Beatles.  So many years ago.  I was even in a band and all we did were beatle songs.  That was 1966.

The Moody Blues were Mellotron users too.

I still do! I used to collect all their albums, then got their CD box set. I last saw them in concert here in Cincinnati fifteen years ago.

A few years back, I made a FB video with some of my lunar images and set it to "The Voyage" from On the Threshold of a Dream.
