Remembering The 1970s Star-Liner Cassegrains


Recommended Posts

If you were into amateur Astronomy back in the 1970s...you probably saw the Star-Liner advertisements in all of the popular astronomy magazines at the time.  Here's one of their 1972 catalogs showing thier combination Cassegrain-Newtonian reflecting telescope (page 28) and many other accessories as well.  They made much larger ones too....up to 16-inchers and even made 40-inch mirrors to boot.  They're still a desirable cassegrain telescope as a "collectable" to have in your backyard observatory....if you can still find one for sale that is.  The old Star-Liner company is long gone now but they are "still" a blast from the past....>

The Star-Liner equatorial clock-driven Newtonian mounts were quite elegant looking....certainly one that always stood out in an observing field of telescopes....>
