Virtually none of the TV shows or movies can get a single telescope viewing scene even close to correct. Was hoping this show which does get a lot of physics right was going to take a stab at it but that was not to be. I need to watch again the Stephan Hawking expedition talk to see if that even is close but I don't think it adds up...

Don't know about the CPC, but did notice a Celestron Ultima 2000 in an earlier episode in Rajs' apartment.

Perhaps we could approach them for a job as their "technical accuracy advisors". J.J. Abrams did go pick up Carolyn Porco to advise him about the last Star Trek movie and the accuracy around Titan/Saturn. I figure we're qualified enough to advise Big Bang Theory on how to properly utilize a telescope.

I noticed the 3 volumes of Burnham's Celestial Handbook on the show too, in the bookcase, don't remember if it's always there.

I missed it last night. Is that true, she was looking at the ISS?

There was a brief mention that it was to pass through the fov while looking at Venus. She had no reaction to suggest she saw anything at all. A real opportunity to have some real astronomy was totally blown.

Kaley has really short legs which is fine but they go out of their way to frame shots to hide it. Also they dress her to hide it. She's pretty but I like long legs.

If you look at the three foxy ladies on the show, they all have short legs. Personally (being vertically challenged myself) I find it totally attractive...different strokes for different folks.

Here's a show with serious, nerdy SCT usage.

Sorry for the handheld cellphone quality.

On one episode Raj, Howard and Lenord took the SCT to a park (I guess to look at the stars BEFORE the meteor shower), while Penny remains home, slips in the shower and Sheldon has to take her to the hospital. One of the funniest episodes in my opinion.




I saw that episode. So the three men went to look at a shower while Penny remains home and slips in the shower. Sheldon, who is virtually asexual, saves her. Is there something Freudian - or Jungian? - going on here? Yes, probably!

J.J. Abrams should have picked up an optical expert to prevent all the glare and flares in his Star Trek movies. I can't stand to see it! That should make anyone who wants aberration-free optics cringe.

Don't you think in the next few hundred years they would have solved the problem of glare within spaceships capable of intersteller travel? Very distracting and a horrible "special effect." I don't think anyone has to have Asperger's to be irritated by all the glare and flares - but if you have Asperger's, the "flare effect" is likely to be even more irritating. I know it ruins the movies for me. It's as if "Flare" is an additional character in the movie, who is overbearing, pushy, and loves to steal every scene he's in. And he is in way too many scenes.

I hope if there are additional movies in the Star Trek franchise, they find someone else besides Abrams to do them.

Sheldon has a girlfriend this year. Raj thinks she is pretty hot.

I've only discovered BBT within the last couple months. I normally avoid network series like the plague, though obviously once in a while they do something right. Now I'm catching up by watching reruns, so my understanding of the timeline is a work in progress.

The way I understood it Sheldon had an on-going "relationship" with Amy Farrah Fowler played by Mayim Bialik from the 90's "Blossom" series. Hot? Well, maybe to me, but to the Raj character? I don't know.

There was also one episode in which an attractive girl had a crush on Sheldon. She was like a theoretical physics groupie. This became stalking and controlling. Remember the movie, "Misery?" But Sheldon got out of that relationship ASAP.

Maybe I should tune into the new episodes.
