Halloween 2019

Post by Mark » October 23rd, 2019, 8:50 am

Hi,

Halloween is about to happen, and are you going have a telescope or binoculars to show the sky to kids and adults? I will, weather permitting, but I have a hard time selecting a scope... I think I will use some binoculars on a mount, for adults, plus a telescope that young kids can use (with an eyepiece close to the ground.)

Have fun with this!

Mark

I used to do this, pre-kids. I used to choose my Losmandy GM8 for its stability and paired it with a TV Genesis for views of whichever planet was well placed.

Have fun!
