A great PBS NOVA documentary on youtube about the telescope, an older episode it is but history is history.

Nice program. Agreat  history of telescopes. They keep building bigger and better, and it's all amazing. I'm forced to downsize from 100mm binoculars and my C8, to my 4" F7ED, and 80mm Master birder for age  and health limitations, but still glad to be able to view at all. Gave away my microscope too, so that cuts me off at that end of things also.  smile.gif

Unreal, do you use a VPN on your computers? cause then it’s jist a matter of temporarily changing your location on your vpn and you’ll be able to see it, then just switch back to your location after.
