Jackson Carle- A Full History to Come

It’s been too long! I’m sure you’ve all heard the stories I write on here about Mr Jackson Carle, and his wonderful 8″ scope.  Well a complicated series of events have lead to us finding, owning, and in the process of restoring this old telescope.  I’ve found photos, magazine articles, the list goes on.  The full story to come.  Here is a photo of Mr. Carle and his telescope from 1955.  I colorized the photo as it was black and white.

  1. Hi Justin;
    It’s been awhile since I checked on your blog sorry about that. Did a great job on the colorization of Carle’s scope. Been busy on the saddle construction and the major wood cutting is complete.Next step is the metal lamination overlay, will start on that soon. will keep you up-dated on my progress……..Grandpa
