Long-standing ambition realised.

About this image

Always fancied one of these. It looks like all the bits are present and correct, "just" needs a bit of TLC. Lucky I had Meccano as a lad, although this is slightly heavier. The 1975 photo is from AE's product brochure and is the very same instrument. These telescopes were out of reach to the majority of us at the time.
