I've been to Adler Planetarium twice to see their "Throough the Looking Glass" exhibit. It was quite interesting, and many of the historic telescopes were of very small aperture. The highlight for me was one of Herschel's telescopes, one identical to the one he discovered Uranus with. I have a picture of that telescope on my Facebook page. Anybody who will be near Chicago should check out this exhibit. Thanks Desh, and keep updating!
