It is a book comprised of short stories from one author starting with the discovery of a "tube" in a "Martian" ruin the creates energy. The remaining stories deal with the usage of this technology... including creating objects from information stored on a disk (ie. Thanksgiving dinner or a Chippendale chair), and teleportation (has to go though 2 steps since the first "jump" leaves a mirror image of you.) I believe “equinox” or “equitorial” may be in the title. I read it back in the 60's. Any help would be appreciated.
