Anybody else see the Little Caesars Pizza commercial with the Dad and the son were looking at the Moon with a reflector,
UPSIDE DOWN with the eyepiece pointed towards the ground.
Idiots......
My Rotten Cherry Tomato award for this year goes to this one!
Its worse than when a Movie does it, cause it is the focus of the whole commercial..

Yeah , I saw it the other night . The thing is that what they are using is called a ground inspector or a floor inspector . :lol:
They are used to check for cracks in the floor or they can be used to find ants and beetles and such in your lawn .

Don't think i've seen the commercial, tho it sounds on par with their pizza. I was gonna jokingly suggest whether this reflector had even been properly collimated before shooting the spot... but i'm beginning to wonder whether this case might be more along the lines of lens caps still being left on.

I once saw a *NASA* brochure with the same thing, GEM mounted Newt pointed at the ground.

I don't think they did it intentionally, I remember a couple movies where these things happened, there was one
where a girl was showing a Comet to a Boy, they were looking through the wrong end there too,
I wish I could remember the name of the Movie..Anybody see it?

Not that it was intentional, but it does show a lack of attention to detail, which should be done in whatever endeavor one does....this just shows shoddy worksmanship and no pride in one's work....and the pizza ain't very good either...

I think it shows that when the general public thinks of telescopes they think of refractors. :p

I'd love to see the box the LCP scope came out of, probably one with the 600X viewing power.
With Christmas shopping season just about to kick into high gear, just how many scopes at dept. stores will be pointed the wrong way.

Perhaps but they won't deliver to a dark site and certainly not to a GPS coordinate. Besides, as some commented elsewhere, if it doesn't have Papa in the name, it can't be any good.

"A Walk to Remember". Mandy Moore was in it. Yes, I was forced to watch it on my wife's movie night choice. The characters even built a dobsonian.

. The movie "Heartbreakers" with Jenifer Love Hewitt had a scene where on the beach this guy was showing her the Crab Nebula through the eyepiece of what looked to be a 4" refractor . It was too much as the camera rendition of the eyepiece view was an astrophoto in all it's colorful glory and filaments . A Hubble view through a 4" Celestron .
Man ,.... I gotta get one of those !

At least they had the scope pointing the right way
But after he showed her the Crab , he moved the scope a couple degrees and said look ! Here's the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules !
