Abstract

Most of the great discoveries of the astronomical past were made with telescopes now thought of as small, though they were not at the time. This chapter presents an overview of some of these past triumphs (with details relegated to appendices), followed by a consideration of what can and cannot be done with small telescopes at present and looking into the future. The discussion is centered on an assortment of outstanding questions and problems in the field selected by several people (including, of course, the author).
