refractor mindset (chuckle)
Here is the Little Caesars commercial. What a hoot
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA… they did that in a Little Caesar’s Pizza Commercial also! Way to funny
They need a sign on the scope that says “This end up” J . Love the refractor mindset though.
One of my HAC club mates was sent this from a friend of his in Ohio. It’s promoting astronomy for goodness sake – you think they could get the simplest detail right. (look at the picture)
Another fun tidbit here is that they included my friend Doug Snyder’s backyard observatory as one of the day trip locations from Tucson. Palominas Starhaven Observatory is a privately owned 10 x 10 roll off with a 20-inch Obsession inside and they listed it right along with the likes of Kitt Peak, Mt Lemmon, MT Graham, MT Hopkins, the UofA Mirror Lab and the Flandreau Planetarium. Doug’s getting on a bit in years, I hope the tourists won’t be too tired to help slide the roof back after that 3 hour drive from Tucson. But I’m going to suggest he open a gift shop.
