Amateur Astronomer in the 60's

When I was in High School in Missoula Montana, I constructed 2 reflecting telescopes. The first was a six-inch then I ground a 10 inch. The larger one was long-focus (9.3) and great on planetary and lunar work. I eventually entered my 10-inch along with studies on Lunar Surfaces (Craters and Mountains) in the Montana Science Fair and won 3rd in Astronomy and Light. After moving to Kansas, I continued to observe and draw planets and lunar features.
