heard from Frank

I heard from Frank D regarding "the modern makers" article published in SkyNews magazine. He's a living, breathing example of the old arts, building the telescope itself, pushing glass, i.e. making his own mirror, and coddling together all the bits and pieces of the mount. In the true spirit of the Amateur Telescope Making community.

Excellent article!  I'm grateful that you provided a realistic picture of various aspects of telescope making, and that neither you nor the editors messed up any details, and that you researched it by asking sensible questions before writing the article.  You did a nice job with it and I see it as an example of very good journalism.

That's... wow. That's an incredible remark. Wow. That makes me very happy.
