Quote:What an archetype! Say what you will about modern optics or "aperture rules." Nothing, absolutely nothing, triggers the instinctive feeling of "telescope" like a pair of Unitron refractors, one rich field, one planetary. How sturdy are those mounts? If we could reach into the picture, could we mount the rich field onto the planetary, so they would always center the same object?
