Denver Colorado Astromarters!!

Posted By Ernie Spragg

Hi, I am hoping to find an Astromarter in the Denver area who would consider checking out a scope for me. If is it satisfactory, I would want you to buy it and take possession of it for me, as well as ship it to me in Fresno CA. I would hope to be able to return the favor someday. Thanks - Ernie Spragg

do something Super on Super bowl Sunday

Posted By Ernie Spragg

Hi, I learned this week that a fellow Astromarter is in danger of losing his house. I don't know the circumstances that have brought him to this point - and I don't want to. The purpose of this post is to ask 19 Astromarters who would like to help me give him a hand to each send me $50. I will send him the $1,000 I collect - and we will all know we have done something nice for a fellow man. Please contact me either via email or Astromart's internal messaging system if you would like to take part. Thanks - Ernie Spragg

disassembly and cleaning of vintage EPs

Posted By Ernie Spragg

Hi - I own 2 valuable older eyepieces which have internal issues. The first is a Clave' plossl which I have owned for several years - i don't remember its fl - and the second is a Gailand 28mm Ortho i just bought. Some time back - perhaps a year or 2 ago - i sold another Clave' with similar issues to an Astromarter who was able to disassemble it and clean it up. The purpose of this post is to locate that gentleman, in hopes he might be willing to operate on my 2 - or failing that, to find someone else who has the experience and time required to do the job correctly. Thanks very much - Ernie Spragg
