Refractor Interest Group

Formed by Paul Valleli in March 2008, several members have been working on making their first refractor. Bert Willard contributed to the optical design using OSLO, and Dick Parker has been hosting work sessions in his basement which has been christened 'Refractorville' (he has made several refractors quite successfully).

Participating members include Jim Ericson, Rick Hunter, Ray Morits, Ken Slater & Dave Tabor.
