We want to share some GREAT NEWS with our members. Aldrich member Jim Tully tied for 3rd prize in the optical competition at the Stellafane Convention. This is an impressive finish in a competition that includes many top notch competitors.

Jim ground and finished his mirror in the Aldrich Mirror Workshop. The mirror blank was one of the lightweight conical mirror blanks that were donated to Aldrich by United Lens in Southbridge.

"This is the 8” f/7 I built, all thanks on the mirror grinding go to all the generous help and facilities of Fran Edwards, there’s no way I win without him! Thanks Fran!" Fran - thanks again for all of your support over the years and for helping many of our members succeed with your mirror grinding and polishing classes! Awesome!
