Reflector on T.V. Pizza Ad. new
      #5514826 - 11/11/12 05:25 PM

I live in the Little Caesar's Pizza Corp. Headquarters area & I recently saw a ad on TV with a man & boy looking at the full Moon with a reflector telescope-maybe 4.5" size. Has any one seen this pizza TV ad? It's a shame that they use this scope like a refractor with the mirror pointing straight up & the 2 people looking thru the focuser in the down position. Maybe they got the idea from the scopes I see for sale on Craigslist lately.

Saw the ad. I was shaking my head for several minutes at the misuse of the scope.....

I think it just reinforces the fact that big refractors are expensive!

There is a post on the same commercial in the beginners section, there's even a link to the youtube commercial.

Thanks but I posted it 1st according to the time & I'm not a beginner. Just kidding---I didn't try to look on you tube. I was thinking about that earlier today-but didn't look.

This ad is a bit like Ford making an ad for the rugged utility of its F150 4WD trucks, using a cowboy-ranch hand driving the truck over rugged range to get to his horse to go herd cattle, and then getting on the horse backwards like Earnest used to ride cows.

There is a long active thread about the same "ad" in the beginner's forum

Hey, just like Mark; it's a "Modified" Reflector....
