Versa-Ped Construction and
Fellow Stargazers, and ATM'ers! ...and Welcome to the construction of the my telescope, the VSC's "VAO
'Jaegers' Versa-Ped Mounted
Refractor". The catalogue number in the Jaegers 1969 catalog
is #1155. I was inspired to build to this telescope after
reminiscing about the my Jaegers 6" f/15 of yesteryear. I hope
everyone checking out this build will be inspired as well. To
