It is similar to tightrope walking.
A long optical tube is slow to react, like the walker when using a balance pole, like the Unitron f15 OTA.
A short optical tube reacts very fast just like a rope walker doing it freehand.

Keith I'm absolutely stunned you only have one Unitron!
I'm not kidding, I felt my jaw drop when I read that.
I have seen pictures of it and it's a beauty. That is the bolt-on-tube, brass looking cell scope you have?
You should post a picture here if you have one handy. Its the oldest one I've ever seen.
What am I talking about I only have one complete Unitron myself!
My entire crazy collection of telescopes contains only one and a half Unitrons.
Can't afford any more
But I sure like the one that I have!
I will attempt to post "A" picture but I doubt that's possible...

It's amazing Unitron was here in the USA way back in the early 1950's.
We were really into the solar system and watching crops grow on Mars right about then.
And we made some super good sci-fi movies like "Forbidden Planet" and "The Day The Earth Stood Still".
Then Sputnik and all of a sudden space became a serious topic. Sputnik transmitted for 22 days! until the batteries ran out. Wow how cool.
Duck and cover!
