Edmund Scientific Astroscan Telescope
As a boy I dreamed of one day owning an Edmund Scientific Astroscan telescope. As I grew older, and my tastes became more mature, I discovered that no serious astronomer would be caught dead using one.
The Astroscan is considered to be little more than a plaything. Not only do the optics leave a lot to be desired, the design is toylike. But perhaps that’s the point. Every time I’ve ever seen a Astroscan at a star party the people using it seem to be having more fun than anyone else.
