I purchased a nice used 6" f/5 reflector last week, and it arrived today.  Despite the usual, "Amateur Astronomer's Curse" (which says, "If thou buyest new-to-you equipment, thine clouds shall afflict thee for a week, at minimum

") and the afternoon / evening clouds not disappointing, I was expecting to have to wait until the weekend at least before getting it outside.  Well, the weather changed plans, and it wound up being mostly clear, so I took the scope out for a test spin.....

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
