No reason for me to lie, I am not a professional astronomer, but an private amateur that has access to several telescopes, I have been asked numerous times to speak in public schools about astronomy and have held events after school with several telescopes, my own is 8" diameter Newtonian reflector with a dobsonain base, but I have friends in a local club that have more similar scopes, one 11" Schmidt Cassegrain, and one very nice 12" homemade dob. I donít have the patience to grind my own mirror like that but hats off to that guy.<quoted text>BS, next you will say you walked on the moon. Why do u lie so much?
The kids and their parents have enjoyed it tremendously.
I have not walked on the moon but have spoken to one astronaut that has... a rare opportunity.
