Hmm.... too many memes?

I've obviously done too many of those TV series memes, because I saw a post on rec.arts.sf.fandom about a VERY expensive and large amateur / pro telescope and my first comment was:
Why do I suddenly find myself imagining a TV series about a retired trucking millionaire turned amateur astronomer who drives his rig and telescope from one eclipse site (or other astronomical event) to the next, fighting crime en route.

Someone really ought to make it...
So... Casting? Not Burt Reynolds or James Garner, they're both a bit too old. And the hero needs to have a crew of assistants / plucky friends / whatever, or it's not going to be much of a show.
