…This book is worth every penny – in spades. You’ll agree once you see the work the author put into it. If you are an SCT fan, this is something you will want – no – something you MUST have! Rod Mollise (Author of “Choosing and Using a Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope)
What can I say about this extaordinary CD on the history of Celestron? It‘s utterly unique, and any astro-geek should not be without one! Doug Peterson.
Have received your CD and really fascinated by it. Worth every dollar!…Tremedous effort on your part to produce this much needed historical document. Kenneth Lum
Bob, Thanks for the copy of your book. I opened it on my computer, and found myself sitting down and reading it instead of working on the other things I had intended to do. It's fascinating…how much more helpful I've found the specific instructions and diagrams, as compared to generic "here's how you collimate a Cassegrain" type of info I can get anywhere else. You've obviously made a Herculean effort to compile all of this information and to put it in such a friendly and interesting form. Thanks again, Professor Andrea Cox, Beloit College.
This unusual e-book (CD-ROM) is probably THE most comprehensive work ever assembled on the early history of Celestron, and the early telescopes they produced. Part history book, part shop manual, part technical encyclopedia, part photo album, it tells the story of Tom Johnson, Celestron’s founder, his company, techniques, and telescopes, from their inception, in 1963, and how they evolved over the years. This book was done with full cooperation of Celestron, and even contains current interviews of 15 of their personnel. 75 chapters, nearly 1300 pages of easy-to-read text, TONS full-color, HI-RES photographs. Too big to put into print at any reasonable price, it is offered on CD ROM in PDF. Requires Acrobat 4 or higher. $49.95 plus $3.00 for S/H. checks, MOs, and paypal welcome. MAC users contact me prior to purchase.
