I feel like an intruder here because I discovered this forum as a result of extensive searches on the internet for advice about a vintage Ross telescope which we inherited and are thinking of giving to our grandson.
I would like to know more about it before passing it on.
A search led me to a reference to a gentleman who is on this forum with the posting name of mackenson who is knowledgeable about telescopes. The forum (understandably) does not allow me to contact him direct with a PM, so I am hoping that someone will read this and put him in contact with me (if he is willing).
(I mistakenly also posted this message as a reply to an earlier introduction - apologies)
