    This is an impressive telescope @kiwi, you are very lucky to own many of these original instruments. Very nice.

    They must be very good on the moon and planets I presume.

    Yes! Right down to those original turret-type eyepiece holder-contraptions! Never actually seen one before! Wow!

    That's a nice looking achromat, Kiwi. You're a very fortunate guy indeed! I'll be looking foreward to hearing more about your experiences with these.

    Than you!

    Hey Kiwi?

    I've been thinking about this for a good while now. Could you possibly take a photo/image of the achromat itself off-angle in a light-source? I'd love to see the colours thrown-off by the coatings. The 'violet' and/or 'green's?'

    It should prove quite interesting!

    Thank you for your postings, my friend. By the way - Ruud is also in Holland.
