This particular Dob has an early, large mirror identified as made by Coulter Optical Co. in Idyllwild, California as the Odyssey 2.

"Old Faithful", a Tasco 6-inch Newtonian Reflector, is a veteran of many a California-desert camping trip back in the sixties and has been a part of the family as long as or nearly as long as several of Art's kids.
