OK, so Friday night was totally cloudy and rainy. So Saturday night came and it was mostly cloudy. ARGH!!! But finally? TONIGHT! Clear, beautiful skies. Glorious wonderful skies!!

Soooooo… out I go with the telescope. Took me forever but I finally figured out what I was doing. And OMG what a breeze! It is totally easy to align it with stuff and find things!

I saw Altair. I saw Polaris. I saw Vega. I saw Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. I even tried to find some fancy stuff but I swear all I saw was sky. Will have to try again later. I had to stop though because I was getting a terrible chill and I’ve been fighting a cold.

But here are the thumbnails of two pictures…

Here is one of my 10 pictures of the moon:

Now here’s one of Mars. It’s bigger because the thumbnail was just not as good.

As always if you want to see more pictures, go to my website. I have 10 pictures of the moon and 2 pictures of Mars. Here is the space picture album and as always, remember that you can click on the thumbnails to see larger copies of the picture!

I had so much fun with the telescope! 🙂 So neat! I highly recommend it. If you can’t afford one, borrow one or try to go to an observatory or something. Enjoy yourself!
