I credit my neighbor Emmet Tobin of Norfolk, VA for getting me into astronomy as early as back in the 1970’s. He had many hobbies including, archery, astronomy, and model airplanes. He was a member of the Norfolk Astronomical Society and invited the neighborhood kids to view the stars through his 4.25″ refractor telescope. When he passed away I checked into purchasing his telescope from the estate. I was successful. Unfortunately a bigger telescope he had built was missing. I regret selling that telescope I did purchase a few years ago.
