I found it particularly false to see Mr Ross looking at Jupiter.He said that the view was fantastic! I suppose he was hoping that no one had noticed him nudging the telescope just as he put his eye to the eyepiece and put it out of line be several million miles.If someone who was showing an interest in Astronomy for the first time saw this, I doubt if their interest would have been maintained. In short, a great idea by the BBC and I hope it returns. But the format needs looking at. On a personal note, I coud do with the massive TV monitor used in the programme: perfect for examining my own astro photos!
