I resurrected a Christmas present to a nephew that had since been mothballed and had fallen into a state of disrepair. After 20+ years of being idle, the small aperture refractor can still produce images that create a sense of wonder!

    Hi Sky and Telescope,
    I mistakenly posted two entries of photos of Saturn through my small refractor.
    The most recent was accepted for Photo Gallery today, January 11, 2016, and contains a much
    shorter description. The other entry was posted sometime last year, 2015, and has a much longer
    description. Would it be possible for you to delete that longer 2015 post? I’m so sorry for any
    inconvenience but I thought I was posting to two different sites under your .com website.
