There are American telescopes the price of those Japanese ones because they have a remote that can adjust the lens to locate a specific celestial object.

I want to appear in an event featuring the Wish Upon the Pleiades itasha just to get a photo of it (unless the cameras are banned). Smile

That's a lot of money for a simple altaz 80mm refractor.

You're paying for a GoTo system that knows where the objects are located based on their coordinates. You can get those telescopes for even less than that. But if you know how to find things yourself, you can get some serious stuff for even just $600.

Goes to show how much fans will pay through the nose to get these things. Still, I didn't think Wish Upon the Pleiades was THAT popular.

Not sure I'd want a right hand drive car in the US, but I want it in the UK no mistake. Problem is I'm sure to be done for causing a distraction to other road users. Wink

I would be totally thrilled if there was a Subaru itasha featuring Subaru Nakajima from the StrikerS season of MGL Nanoha.
