A Couple of Photos and Nice Note from John...

"I have a telescope again!  Hooray.

Everything fits, it moves well -- no sticking or binding. I could probably cut the rocker box down 4-6in, but I like the height for now. I could also put some lightweight holes into it. But now I just want to get it outside under the stars! I'm so glad I found you and your kit. This will get me back into observing again.

I will stay in touch. maybe you and Linda can make it out here sometime."

John and his 12.5" Strut Kit...

A super visit by John from Solvane, CA. John stopped by Palm Desert to visit some friends and pick up his 12.5" strut-kit. We enjoyed talking about telescopes and optics. John is an "optical engineer" who had worked on the Hubble and Webb telescopes. How "cool is that"!!
