18 inch Ritchey-Chretien at Unv. Florida - Al-Paslow
Another view of tube assembly, now with mirror cover off.

The telescope boasts the best of everything for its time. Actually made in the 1960's or early 1970's the scope was featured in several old Coulter S & T advertisements  in the  70's. But as I recall it only appeared in picture form. Perhaps almost as a trademark, with nothing to really say about it.

I don't think Jim really wanted to openly sell it but it probably got some inquires!

The telescope was eventually sold to University of Florida in 1973.
