I am completely new here but noticed you mentioned you had access to tubes back in September....was wondering if that was still true?? I didn't want to just call you out of the blue so I thought I would post a quick note...

My son and I are going to build a small 4.5 Dob Telescope and need a 6 inch tube at least 36" long if I am figuring correctly... have found a 4.5 f/8 mirror set for about $70... I am hoping we can keep the whole cost down to $100 - $125 and have a much better scope then we could ever possibly afford.... have Berry's book and some other info and plans from the net ... finding a tube would be a good start...

thanks for your help
