Sad news indeed and the end of an era. I always enjoyed the entertainment of meeting Dudley Fuller when I visited Telescope House in London. For several years as a teenager I owned a Fullerscopes 6-inch reflector with “A” grade optics in a shiny white tube on a MkIII mounting. And one of the best views of M13 I have had was with the 18-inch Fullerscopes Newtonian at Charterhouse (Nick, I didn’t break it – it was somebody else who grabbed hold of a massive tube counterweight which came off in his hand – I just had to stand there balancing the tube on my head whilst help was summoned!).
