    Thumbs up

    Thanks, Evan. This is a good "watch", especially for any who have not attended a star party of any size. It bears mention that a star party and an astronomy club are almost always the very best way to get into amateur astronomy as you form your idea of what kind of scope, eyepieces, etc., will best suit you.

    Clear Skies!
