    Hi Jeff! Sorry to hear about your pneumonia....that stuff is no fun! Hope you get to take your scope out. No matter what snags show up as you learn how to use it, take it all in and make sure you have fun. As you learn about your scope and the sky, things will get easier. ....Just don't stay out so long that you get a relapse with the pneumonia!
