Quote:"So what's the fuss all about? I haven't read the S&T article." Its a good article, my question is, will S&T allow an apposing study to be printed in the next issue? Or at lest print one apposing view in the letters section.

Quote:Rick,There's no risk of embarrassment here as I havent stated anythimg false or untrue. Some if his claims are sensible - indeed his thoughts on eyepieces and magnification are spot on. Still others are a reach at best and at least one example utterly false and baseless. How or why Mr. Bruce decided to turn a thread about TLPs into a Roger Gordon Adoration procession is beyond me . Gordon's thoughts on Mellish fare not a whole lot better than his Questar claim. Some things he gets right, others not at all. I can't be embarrassed for something Im not wrong about . As for his book - Ive read too much information elsewhere that's too damning of Mellish to make his book seem like anything but an exercise in self indulgent lawyering on Gordon's part.Pete
