    That article ia dated November, 1973. I've got the whole collection 
of Amateur Scientist columns on CD from . I 
think this is a great deal for $29 and recommend it highly, even though 
several of the early articles are just descriptions and pictures of 
amateur-made telescopes and how that hobby was growing at the time, with 
very little technical info. The articles in the most recent five decades 
more than make up for the earlier ones.
