But not _in_ focus, as anyone who's used binos or target scopes to look at the Moon and stars will know. Why mention small scopes? Well, if Martin had checked those "certain measures" he would've found how Bonilla did it: "In order to verify indirectly the approximate distance to the 'swarm' of bodies, I had carefully prepared the 'finder', the equatorial and a silver mirror lens (Eddy) 0.10 m in diameter and focussed them on the Solar-disk and then on the bodies, while at night I was able to steer this system also towards the planets and the moon, which had been in the first quarter over the past two days. Without changing the focus of the system, only the Moon was seen with sharpness." Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
