The Definitive Newtonian Reflector
Jul 28 2015  

Amateur astronomers and telescope makers have debated from time immemorial the advantages and disadvantages of different telescope designs.  In particular, mountains of hard copy and electronic articles are available on the merits of refracting and reflecting telescopes, more recently, apochromatic refractors vs. Newtonian reflectors. This debate has become rather rancorous (Newtonian telescopes as APO "killers" comes to mind.) and unscientific, to say the least. And when all is said and done, in a discourse without loaded words and acrimony, a discussion devolves to one concerning perfect optics.  And isn't this what we all want or wish we had?

Binocular Universe: Once in a Blue Moon
Jun 27 2015  

"Once in a Blue Moon." We have all used that phrase at one time or another when talking about something that only happens on rare occasions.  Astronomically speaking, today's definition of a "Blue Moon" refers to the second Full Moon occurring in the same calendar month.
