To paraphrase George S. Kaufman, 1889-1961, (and without allowances for the
since-launched HST):

"On Mount Wilson, there is a telescope that can magnify the most distant
stars up to 24 times the magnification of any previous telescope.   This
remarkable instrument was unsurpassed in the world of astronomy until the
construction of the Mount Palomar telescope, an even more remarkable
instrument of magnification.   Owing to advances and improvements in optical
technology, it is capable of magnifying the stars to four times the
magnification and resolution of the Mount Wilson telescope.  If you could
somehow put the Mount Wilson telescope inside the Mount Palomar telescope,
you *still* wouldn't be able to detect the depths of stupidity in that
statement."
