    Welcome to the forum! ... Regarding the shining Sun, rememeber that it's safer to point your telescope to the Sun during the night.

    to Astronomy Forum, and for joining our group. Take care of yourself and get healthy (even though a new scope is a great incentive for a long stay at the eyepiece) before trying too many extended viewing sessions. Please give us some details about your new scope, and let us know how your first light went as soon as you have a chance to post a report
