interesting that people might try these devices as extra-long telephotos.  They'll never replace
telephoto camera lenses, but if people understand how to use them (there are rules) they can get
some utility out of them.  A long time ago, a Japanese photog used a 3900mm telescope (f/10) for
doing photography, but it wasn't exactly mainstream.

Not exactly the same thing, but you are aware that there are currently
binoculars with built-in cameras?

I do not see why this should not be extended to telescopes. Specifically
built with image capture in mind.
