Re: [tmboptical] Re: TV-102 vs "TMB130LW" size comparison?
- Hi Rodger,
I've still got some S&Ts from when I was a teenager in the 60's and I
just loved those Unitrons. They just bristled with knobs and handles
and gadgets. I still like a refractor to look reasonably long and
bristling with gadgets but one has to be practical. I'm going to dig
out my old S&Ts

there ain't a FS-152 f/6 sizewise ;-(, is there? But I just remember
that I'll need probably the monsterous G11 (no budget for this) and
that I already asked Thomas last week to go away and expedite cashing
in my deposit check ;-).
