Yes, it's me at 12 years old with my first telescope a 3" reflector from Harry Ross. That's a pipe-fitting mount (Rob King helped with some welding expertise)

Meade 8" Schmidt Newtonian on a mini-pier and Losmandy G11 equatorial head I built this scope in the 70's based on a Coulter 1/10 wave 12.5-inch mirror. The tube is completely fabricated and welded from 1/2" electrical conduit. The mount is pipe fittings with babbitt bearings Late 70's (what's with the hair and goatee??) A 10" f5. It's the same pipe fitting mount I made for the 12.5" reflector.
