Elements in Harmony I was the first of my telescopes to win an award. An award at Stellafane's not a bad place to start....

Stellafane's main attraction that year was Clyde Tombaugh, so of course I snapped a picture of him next to my scope....

Of the many renditions of the scope, mostly mount changes, this was the final version which was most useful. The dual tables, one for charts, the other for eyepieces made for a nice observing system.... I sold this setup at Astrofest in 1992 I think. If anyone has seen this telescope contact me please. I don't remember the name of the guy who bought it.
