Gomez Addams: Astronomer
Add astronomical pursuits to Gomez's eclectic interests. A brass telescope of limited aperture, perhaps 2.5" glass...the focal length is decent - but finderscope pretty much useless...
An Alt/Az mount, the Dec. is accomplished thru a rough tube & clamp system. Nice wooden legs, but a chain needs to hold them together...lest they separate. The main OTA's focuser is a crude push/pull motion and fixed eyepiece.
More of a conversational piece, useless for even causal astronomy, but every home should have a telescope...and besides...
One of my all time favorite programs. I still remember seeing the original Adams Family cartoons in a book my parents had while I was growing up. This is probably one of the few sitcoms I ever really followed. They just don't make them that well any more.
