I used to enjoy reading this forum

The radical, idiotic right, which has largely controlled public policy in the USA for the past 30 years (if not 230 years), refuses to shut up and go away. Their policies have not ever worked for the average person and have damn near brought the USA to its knees. Has the USA ever been so screwed up before? Not in my lifetime. Yet, the radical right wants to blame the Democratic Party and its "radical" leader. Oh, s--t, give me a break.

Call the Republicans, and you'll be told that you're on your own. Do you like that any better?

New, old refractor!

Posted By William Green

I'm late to the party here, I know, but I have some questions:

What is the current market price for a Unitron 4" optical tube in mint condition? (When I was a kid, I really wanted one!) Unitron 5" optical tube?

What is the level of color correction? (I assume they're just good, long-focus achromats.) How do they compare to the D & G's of today?

How consistently good (or bad) are the optics?

Where can I learn more about Unitron refractors?

Thank you.

Note the concern on rising sea level as well.

Really, who would you rather trust: (1) The National Academy of Sciences and virtually all professional climatologists or (2) Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh, and the denialist "Astromart climatologists"???
