Dose anyone know where I can buy a Gemini 5 patch that is the "peel and stick on" type as opposed to the more common cloth type? I really want one.

I know this is a strange request but I own a 3.5 inch Questar Telescope. This is the same type of telescope that flew on the first manned space mission to carry a telescope. That mission was Gemini 5 and I'd like the "stick on" type of patch to put on the carrying case of my Questar.

P.S. In his book LEAP OF FAITH Gordon Cooper claimed he was able you use the Questar to photograph the licence plates of cars parked on Earth! The Questar is a great scope and well worth it's price but it can't do what Cooper says it can! He also claimed that after the flight the CIA grabbed the scope, camera and film because he had taken pictures of AREA 51.
