I’ve really been a lot more interested in Astronomy since our little trip to the Frosty Drew Observatory a few weeks ago. It’s surprisingly fun when you start hunting down excitement in the night sky.
I got my telescope in 1999. It’s an 8″ Celestron, so it’s a good sized beast. 8″ refers to the size of the mirror, and in the world of telescopes this one flirts with the edge between Amateur and Hardcore.
Since that fateful night in Rhode Island, I’ve brought my telescope outside four or five times to take a look at the night sky. It’s a relaxing way to end an evening of homework or work work.
I think I’d like to dive into it a little deeper. I’ll report back.
