Before Celestron, Unitron had the back cover for around 20 years or so.

I have been getting S&T for roughly almost 3 years about now but never really noticed that it was always Celestron on the back until now. All I really paid heed to was that the scopes were typically gorgeous, initimidating-looking and out of my reach- weight, cost and experience-level-wise!
I'm looking at the back cover of my copy now (which is always a bit tattered in recent months, thanks for nothing USPS ) and see the striking, also intimidating-looking, blue-bodied LX600 series. What aperture scope is the one shown in the picture, 12"? 14"? (Not that I can afford either!)
Also out of curiosity, did old S&T issues from the 70's to early 80's feature The Celestron Girls http://www.philharri...net/c-girls.jpg (courtesy of Sirs Phil and Rod) striking poses on the back covers alongside those beautiful Glossy-black and Pumpkiny-Orange OTA's? (C8 I will have thee, Someday, someday!)

Now there's a factoid I had no clue about, you really do learn something new ...
Its actually not a "factoid" at all. You are misusing the term. A factoid is a bit of information that is misleading or void of fact.
