TelescopeMan describes the refractor, the reflector, and the catadioptric telescope; three terms that confuse beginner amateur astronomers.
TelescopeMan invites amateur astronomers to the Fixya.com answer web site to help answer beginner questions about telescopes.

The Tasco and Bushnell scope manual web sites are revealed during this podcast.
