Re: (IAAC) Obj: Albireo (Beta Cygni) - Inst: 102 mm f/9.8 Achromatic refractor



Hi, Ray,
Oops, sorry, no cultural slight intended.  Crayola is the brand name for one
of the most common crayons...at least back when I was in elementary school
in the 50s.  They came in boxes of 8, 16, 24, and on up and were a bit of a
status symbol for the 8-and-under set back in those innocent, pre-Sputnik
times.  I remember being enormously impressed when a classmate turned up
with a box of 64.  It had all sorts of exotic colors I'd never heard of
before.  Until then, I'd always thought that red was...well, just red.  How
little did I know!
Cheers,
Mike Smith
