    Interesting.. I've always wondered if you could see something like that up there.

    But, I doubt the doubters will change their minds, if you still don't believe it by now, nothing is going to convince you... even if you flew them out there and rubbed thier noses in Neil Armstrong's footprint.

    Are they naive enought to think that we'd fall for their tricks? Sure the image that appears looks like a lunar lander, but why should we believe those who built the telescope any more than we believe NASA in the first place. You can bet this new telescope is funded by grants of some sort, which ultimately will be traced back and proven to be under the control of the one world government.
    Those of us in the "know" will realize that its just a clay model in the next room that we are actually seeing.

    You know, I still don't innately prefer DTS 5.1 to Dolby Digital 5.1. The DTS thing has often struck me as cultish at times.

    Had to get that off my chest.

    Wow, that much resolution huh? Maybe they should try to locate a planet on another solar system 40 light years away and catch the reflection of light coming from the earth on November 22, 1963 to finally prove that there was a second gunman on the grassy noll!

    If They can fake the Moon Landings, then They can fake the photos.

    Why bother at all? These crackpot theories don't deserve the attentin they are getting and its a shame to see valuable time on these telescopes being wasted in this fashion.

    Well, at the very least, it would be a good test of the scope's abilities. [​IMG]
    I'm not sure if this telescope is the "hubble-killer" though. There are supposed to be a couple of super-telescopes being planned/built.

    Those who think the moon landings were faked won't believe the telescope images prove anything.
    Here's a quote from Max's link:

    A well-engineered DD 5.1-encoded DVD will sound better than a poorly engineered DTS-encoded DVD. No question.

    If a tree falls in a forest and you're not there, does it make a sound?

    Yeah, what "proof"?

    Some guys are going to look through that telescope and testify that they saw the rests of a real moonlanding. Perhaps take some photographs. Perhaps have a TV program.

    What's the actual difference of that with some guys testifying they actually participated in a moonlanding operation and producing some photographs? And it was on TV.

    I have the processing capability to upgrade to a 6.1-channel system, but even that seems like overkill to me. In a relatively small urban apartment, one must make sacrifices. So, face it: Martin-Logan electrostatic towers are not in the plans for any time soon.

    If a man says something in the forest, and a woman isn't around to hear him, is he still wrong?

    If a moderator farts in your thread, does that mean the moon landings weren't faked? [​IMG]
    With any luck, that new telescope will also find everyone's matching socks!
