    But this will not work.
    Just take any scope and hold a wire in front of the
    objective lens. You will not see this wire through the scope.
    The only place to put the wire is in the FOCUS of the
    objective lens. In Galileo scope this focus is behind your eye:-)

    I think this rule is not rational because you cannot
    stick to it consistently. It is just an accident that Cyrillic
    letters C, H, O and T look like some Latin letters.
    But what will you do if you encounter a Cyrillic letter which
    has no Latin counterpart? Look, for example at the letter
    "SHCH" on the arm of your SNO-M sextants:-)
