Been too cloudy to shoot anything so I thought everybody might get a kick out of this.  A glimpse of the 1997 Meade General Catalog.

Thanks, Steve! :)

 

I have an old DS-16 mount that looks about like the ones in the bottom left picture.

Thats a heck of a catalog. Its a shame companies don't really engage in this type of advertising anymore.

Back in the '90s I drooled over this catalog!  I ended up purchasing a Model 390 that I still have today.  Always said when I could afford it I was going to get an 8" SCT which I finally did in 2015.  It's a great scope and I love it!

We always used to call catalogs like that, Wish books.
Thank you!
