      Thanks for responding makus,
      I now know a little more history on my scope and the conglameration between APM/TMB. I am at the Sasketchewan Summer Star Party, and getting more info. There are two TMB's including mine, so we are having a field day with these great old scopes. I also have my AP 130, but havn't had a real need to pull it out, happy doing AAVSO double stars, with my now APM/TMB it's inpressive compared to the more expensive stuff.
      I head a lot of second hand history on the relationship between TMB and APM, that i will not go into.

      When I contacted APM (You) via email for info you told me you did not have any and to contact a US dealer,
      You did not tell me to contact TMB, but in retrospect if you live in North America and you have to get info you call the source, I though TMB would be my best bet, not a reseller. Secondly I was not complaining about you or your services, don't know where you are comming from. No need to start that train of though.
      I thank you very much for the rest of your communication.

      Regards Roy
