This particular gathering was unusual in that there were three Lurie-Houghton telescopes in attendance. This was probably the largest gathering at any time of this telescope design anywhere. The other LH scopes there was Mike Spooner's fraternal twin to mine and Torsten Clay's 8" f/4 that he had just finished. Roger Cerigoli of Tucson made the optics for Torsten's scope.
This photo was taken 24 March 2001 with my Olympus OM-3 and a 40mm f/2 lens with the help of Mike Spooner.
