Dear Sir;

I can give you a little history of the Telescope. It was one of three Telescopes made for the US Army Redstone Arsenal, who is still the listed owner. Telescope #9-*** was purchased for the US Army Redstone Arsenal by Dr. Wernher von Braun who was the Deputy Associate Administrator of NASA in Washington, DC. This Telescope was made on 05/18/59 and is a Questar Standard. There is no listing of what kind of mirror it has so from the date we believe it has Pyrex Mirror. There is no record of it ever being serviced by us.
