Hi,

I am one year into the hobby. I have acquired some really nice Apos. I wanted to know what is the best way to store them, say for a few months. Thanks all.

Zeiss Astro Books or websites

Hi,

Does anyone here know of any good books or websites on the history of Zeiss Astronomical equipment or personalities ? I have found achromat.de very helpful. Even German titles would be helpful. Thanks all !!

Hi Jamey,

You should contact John C. Mutch III. He is on astromart. He is a Zeiss telescope collector and an expert on pre-War Zeiss instruments. Thanks.
