My Telescopes

These are the telescopes and other optics I currently own.  They run the gamut from cheap binoculars and antique junk to what would have been, when I was younger, quite an impressive amateur instrument (which, by today's standards, is quite modest).  I'll be adding to these pages from time to time, either as I add more instruments to my array, or as I get more photographs taken and articles written.
