For us nostalgia lovers, what would you do in this situation.
I am picking these scopes just as an example, if you had this situation, you probably have different scopes, but the dilemna would be the same.
For example, say you grew up in the 50's and 60's, and you looked at untiron or maybe a celestron scope that you grew up watching the ads, hoping every Christmas you would get one, but never did. Then one day you has enough money to get the scope of your choice, say a 4 inch unitron. You had this scope for many years and loved it to death. Then one day, you bought a modern scope, smaller and easier to use, say a small SCT ( 5 or 6 inch), and the views were better, if just because of the bigger eyepieces. But whatever reason, you could see better image in the newer Chinese scope. Then for some reason, either financial difficulties, or an upset wife, or what ever reason you had to get rid of one of the scopes. Would the nostalgia factor rule over the better view , or would you get rid of the scope you loved for years for a slightly better image. I have not run into this situation yet, but I could one day, and I do not know what I would do, but the chances are I would keep the old scope I love dearly, and think of how many hundred times it is better than what Galileo had.
