Some years ago, I replaced that telescope--a reflector with a four-inch mirror whose limited light-gathering power made it useful mainly for looking at the major spectacles of our solar system--with a Schmidt-Cassegrain refractor whose eight-inch mirror can also capture the glow of distant nebulae and separate the stars in a cluster; but as I have aged I use it less and less.

Most telescopes have poor optics because people in the past were interested only in total light-gathering power when they built large [telescopes]," says Kenneth J.
According to the most recent plans, the NNTT would be a square array of 8-meter mirrors that could work together to simulate the light-gathering power and resolution of a single 16-meter mirror or could work separately (SN: 1/3/87, p.
