Abstract

 

In 1958 I met Leslie Peltier when the Lima Astronomy Club took a field trip to Delphos, Ohio, to see Leslie and his famous Merry-Go-Round Observatory with its 6-inch "Comet Seeker" refractor. I had already ground my own 8-inch f/3.2 reflector and had spent evenings just "looking around," but I didn't yet know that there was something of great value I could do from my own backyard. That visit proved to be the beginning of a long friendship and many starlight nights.
