Just got into this TV series, it's great so far.   Spotted an EQ6 and large reflector in Season1 episode 9.

 

So many things wrong with it LOL!

 

Also have to wonder if that was a collectors item due to the far future timeline of the show.

Yeah, there's also some kind of refractor on an alt-az mount visible just before that.

Funny how they pretty much always get Newton telescopes wrong in movies laugh.gif

Where's the counterweight? confused1.gif  What a waste of a good scope.
