I was remembering my first telescope. All I remember was it was a very small aperture reflector of around 3 inches. My parents purchased it for me, back in the 1960's, and from that moment on, I was hooked on astronomy.
I searched the internet for information on this telescope, though, being so long ago, it was very difficult to remember it, other than it was small, had a tripod with a stirrup mount and some kind of adjusting screw, and oh yes, it was white.
The picture I found is the closest I can come to what I remember. It came with two tiny eyepieces, which I believe were Kellner types. Anyway, I do believe this is a picture of my first telescope that got me hooked. Caley
