To me,the Telescope Workshop series (Gary) is almost always a little to compressed. I think it would be nice if this series getting a more dominant role in the magazine.




Total agreement.

As far as the issue of the young lady in the photograph a simple meter stick could have sufficed.

Back OT:

Having a lot of time under the stars and with the military and having visited the Hunley "in person" I was thoroughly pleased with the article!

(gues my bias shows )

If the advertisers were restricted to yardsticks for scale, we would've never had all those nice Celestron ads over the years...

Not to mention how weird it would be if the guy's daughter-in-law was a yardstick...

The photo was tastefully done. I have no issue with it, and can't for the life of me see why anyone else would.
