Telescope Tubing Source

My apologies to all who know this already - a source for seamless telescope tubing is Hastings Irrigation Pipe Company. There web site is http://www.hipco-ne.com/

I just recently ordered a 7" diameter seamless aluminum tube 12" in length to replace my 6" length dewshield which Jaegers supplied with their 6" refractor kits. The new aluminum needs some sanding and painting, but it is a perfect fit. The transaction was very smooth. Hastings does have a minimum order of $40.00. Many different diameters and wall thicknesses are available.
