Quote:I'd like to be a fly on the wall in the factory. Just how many corners are the assemblers required to cut in order to move product out the door in the minimal time?I'm becoming increasingly convinced that while cheap scopes can be had with a reasonable degree of confidence, the chances of a satisfactory outcome scale as the inverse of the square of the number of objectives. (For the mathematically-challenged, two objectives result in a confidence factor 1/4 that for a cyclopean instrument.)
The night sky is the canvas....
My optics are the brush....
The Milky Way is the masterpiece
reductio ad absurdum of epistomology is solipsism....

Quote:I'm also wondering about the descrepancy between Mike's aperture results vs. Contrailmaker's measure of 95mm.
Quote:Agree with the above. My measurement had the flashlight too close to the EP.
