Big Bang Theory may have an SCT scene
      #5862153 - 05/15/13 01:05 PM

We all love the show and always notice when there are scopes in the background as a prop but they never do anything with them. Maybe that will change in the season finally on 5/16. Maybe it will just last 2 seconds maybe more. In any event what scope is this? A Celestron 8 Nextar???

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.

No, they took the SCT to observe the shower. I hate to criticize because BBT comes much closer to getting things right in astronomy than most other shows. But they still manage to miss details. That goes for science in academe generally.

Still, minor quibbles. Them getting absolutely toasted by the brownies of a couple of aging school teachers gets them a pass for any mis-use of equipment.

Adam,
Yes another SCT was used as a prop and barely visible. The science was all wrong here as a large telescope is needed for this type of measurement. Still one of my favorite scenes.

Too bad they set it up wrong. They mounted the OTA upside down. The focus knob and the retaining knob on the mount go on bottom. They also connected the hand controller to the wrong port and didn't use the tripod spreader plate. Now novice Nexstar users will unwittingly follow suit.

I wonder if they'll say what she's supposed to be looking at? If I had to guess I would say Saturn. But that gives the writers to much credit to know that that planet is actually in season... Any other guesses???

The SCT with the dark reddish-orange barrel (seen mostly in Raj's appartment) is one of the early single-arm NexStar 8's which became available after the original single-arm NexStar 5 came out. There was a thread about these scopes in the Off-topic Observatory forum quite some time back. A dark-tubed Celestron NexStar 4" refractor also was seen in some episodes, along with an small 2.4 inch dark blue-tube refractor (probably a low-end Meade) and an unidentified silver-tubed 3 or 4 inch aperture refractor. In the episode where they were in the desert to watch a meteor shower, there was one that looked like an old Dynamax 8 SCT, but the lighting wasn't terribly good so it's tough to tell. A Celestron CPC 8 SCT also was in the episode where they were attempting a lunar ranging experiment. Clear skies to you.

The refracter is the Nexstar 102 SLT.

I bought it for my kids a few years ago, then when BBT had it I showed my daughter that they have her scope on BBT. She loves that show.

Also, when they were using it, they were holding the EP to their eye instead of just moving their eye to the EP. (cant remember the episode)

Thats my Favorite show. I remember them using the 102mm Refractor on the rooftop. The CPC is in Raj's Apartment..
Still better than the Pizza commercial! looking through the upside down Newtonian!!! I wonder why it is so hard for people

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Agree...enough with the flares!

Now, here is the interesting part of the flare deal. I saw a clip (behind-the-scenes type) while they were shooting one of the bridge scenes. They had a guy with a large flashlight looking device shining it into the camera while moving and tracking. Flares were purposely put in.

I suppose the guy with the flashlight had a flare for that sort of thing. (yeah, bad pun, could not help myself)

I remember that episode. Riki Lindhome played the physics groupie, Ramona Nowitzki. Definitely a hot gal. She is in a singing group called Garfunkle and Oates with Kate Mucucci who, by the way played Raj's neurotic girlfriend, Lucy, in the last couple of episodes.

I kinda like the flares in Star Trek, somehow made it look retro.

Retro and anachronistic, like Steam Punk? Yeah, that concept doesn't make any sense either. Maybe Abrams should have filled the bridge of the Enterprise with steam instead of flares.

Flares in Star Trek movies: stupid, amateurish-looking, anachronistic. Please, no more. Fire Abrams ... or his optical effects expert! Ya basta!

Mike. You really need to stop holding things in. You should speak your mind. Let it out - else it will just churn inside. As we say in Maryland, it will make ya feel better...hon.





Yes, I should stop holding it all in. We also say in Maryland, "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute. It'll change." I think of emotions like the weather. Wait a minute, it'll change.

A co-worker who watches BBT asked me about the scene with Raj and his..girlfriend I guess she was/ is who knows. "Can you really see the space station in a telescope? Have you ever seen it?" At least it gave me the chance to talk astronomy for a while at work.

"Well first let me tell you what was wrong with that scene."

In my experience most people who find out I'm an amateur astronomer immediately ask at least one of three questions:

(1) "Ever seen a UFO?"
(2) "Can we see your pictures?"
(3) "Ever seen a rocket go up or the space station fly by?"



When I tell them I actually OBSERVE celestial objects, they give me a look like deer caught in headlights. Neither they nor the deer have a clue. But at least people won't run into the side of your vehicle as you drive home from a dark site ... on second thought...

Folks, amateur astronomy is NOT the space program, and IMO it's not about taking pictures. And I've never seen a UFO.

Maybe I should have a T-shirt made up which says:

I'm an amateur astronomer.
I've never seen a UFO.
I don't follow the space program.
And I don't take pictures.
