    Default Telescope Manufacturer Merger Announcement



    3/31/2004
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    Takahashi Seisakusho of Tokyo, Japan is pleased to announce
    that it has acquired the assets of Unitron, Inc. of Bohemia, NY.
    Unitron refractors are legendary for high performance in
    an air-spaced doublet achromat.

    With the merger of Takahashi and Unitron, we are releasing
    a new line of high-performance long focus apochromatic
    refractors. The new product line will be called either
    Takatron or Unihashi pending final agreement.

    Our first telescope in this new line, expected to reach
    dealers by late summer, is a 102mm f/16 fluorite triplet
    which will be so color-free that it will be superior
    to even a Newtonian reflector in freedom from chromatic
    abberation.

    I'm sure you meant: Aberbation. Aberration is spelled: aberration.

    What did the Ole Prospector say when he found Shawn Grants corpse at the

    bottom of the Grand Canyon? "aflak"!

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

    The two largest manufacturers of telescopes in the United States announced
    today that negotiations for their merger have been suspended. Celestron
    International and Meade Instruments said in a joint press release that they
    cannot agree on a name for the new company. Both expressed reservations
    about "Mestron," previously the leading candidate.
    A board member who wished to remain anonymous said that the two companies
    also could not agree on standard sizing for their telescopes, which are now
    available in 2, 2.4, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.25, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.25, 10, 11, 12, 14, 16
    and 20 inch diameters. "We felt that adding 13, 15, 17, 18, and 19 inch
    scopes was overkill, and neither company would agree to drop anything from
    their lines," said the source.

    The new product line will be called either

    I vote for Unihashi !
    And it will be tough to do color correction with given f/ratio better
    than in Newtonians, that have min colors.
