    Have fun with your telescope, Astroboy, and clear skies!

    Soon you'll be taller than your telescope.

    Then Dad will have to by you an even larger one

    Welcome to the forum. It seems like you are practicing my very favorite form of astronomy, father/son together. No doubt the two of you will be able to talk about all sorts of things while you search the skies for new wonders.
