He inspired generations of telescope builders, including me. "How to Make a Telescope" will always be a cherished book.

WOW! I just read about that and after having sold two telescope making books that he wrote. I'm glad I read them before I let them go. He REALLY knew all that he wrote.

All the best,

Just a few thoughts:
