It doesn’t matter how big of a mirror you have, trying to collect light through our atmosphere is a real pain. You are way better off putting a massive telescope in space like the Hubble telescope. That is why I am waiting for the new Hubble series to be release by Orion Telescopes. But, until that happens, we all can take a look at the new pictures beaming down from the Hubble and its 8 foot mirror. Not to mention that NASA just finished some over due upgrades which are making this optical giant purr like a kitten. If anything should have nine lives, it should be our eye on deep space.
