The Annie Maunder Astrographic Telescope The Royal Observatory, Greenwich, England

Ooooh!  I want one!  Especially now that  red giant star Betelgeuse is throbbing on and off, and may blow (this behavior is perfectly normal, but you wouldn't know it from the clickbait articles).


  1. No scale to go by, but I would guess an SCT of at least 16 inches with two
    Refractors and finder scope on the upper left with a classic equatorial mount.

  2. Missed it by 2 inches. It is a 14 inch Celestron which is in the range
    of a serious amateur astronomers budget.
