Virtually none of you here will know me but I have been on the old binocular list for many years and was a friend of Peter. And I am as shocked as all of you at his sudden passing.
Has anyone or any group taken on the task of saving Peter's website and all the great information there?  It would be a great loss if it were to disappear.

Dear friends, over the past two weeks many amongst you have made donations for Peter Abrahams' funeral wreath. Your response was overwhelming, a real tribute to Peter's work and legacy. In total we raised € 250. Complying to the wishes of Peter's family, we decided to spend € 100 on a floral piece, and donate the remaining amount to a scientific society, dear to Peter.

We thought it to be appropriate to donate to the Antique Telescope Society, Peter having been their president for many years. They are dedicating their upcoming convention to Peter's memory and we're certain that would be an appropriate use of our donation.

Peter and Martin,
yes, donate the money to the ATS - they will make good use of it.
They (ATS Forum group) were the ones that I first got the information of Peter's passing away.
Regards Uli

Now there also is an online obituary from the Oregonian (Magazine). You can also sign a guest book there, leaving some personal words.
