   I have a collection of 500-series oscilloscopes.  Fantastic 
instruments, even by today's standards.  If I didn't care about the 
power bill, I could do my "day job" with a 547.

   I have a 519 in my lab. (actually two)  While not really a part of 
the 500-series, that model was a real achievement.
