Personally, I don't have a tattoo.
But it seem's that these days, a lot of people do.
Then there is a fellow from Hamilton I know, Barry Sherman who has been an amateur astronomer for over 30 years.
Barry knows optics.
And Barry happens to have a body full of tattoos.
He has probably run out of space, but frankly I don't want to know ALL the details!
Heck, my favorite tattoo of his is the "Marvin the martian' of Bugs bunny fame.
Barry is a bit of a telescope nut, and has probably in his lifetime looked through, used and traded
so many telescopes,
I've lost track.
And the lesson he shared with me the other day is a simple one.
To see any worthwhile detail, you need aperture. Yep, aperture.
The trick is to get aperture without sacrificing portability.
It's no easy feat!
That is why the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope still remains one of the most popular designs
of instruments for many amateur astronomers.
And one of the legendary Schmidt Cassegrains that has a proven track record of reliability and
sometimes known as a "quiet secret of the industry" is the Meade Instruments LX90 series.
Meade finally put them on sale this month, after many years, and unfortunately, there are only

PS I'll have to ask Barry if he would consider getting a "Khan Scope Centre" tattoo on his forehead, because there was a bit of space left there. That would be pretty cool!
