Well, I do have a 50mm MikroMak in the lounge room, wife tolerates that much. She'd also tolerate a Questar.
But... I would NOT keep a telescope with good optics in the lounge, for two reasons:
- the risks associated with curious children. Enough said.
- the air quality in the average home is not exactly clean. The optics will be contaminated with a greasy film, eventually.
So.. that means its just a display piece, which is probably appropriate for these old-timers. Questar included.
