    Ummmm... no, sorry cawilliams. The budget doesn't stretch to that. But there's a Dollar Tree nearby so I could always have a look to see what they have

    Welcome rawburt! Nice to meet you

    Hey, Robert! I'd say this can now be defined as a "thing..."

    Good Morning Everyone,

    I am a new member and new to StarGazing. Although I live in Somerset, KY my commute to/from Indianapolis takes me through Louisville twice a week during the middle of night almost exclusively, but would definitely stop on the way for some looking at the heavens. I am in the process in purchasing my first telescope and would definitely take it with me to work.

    Good central location as well...that would be something to consider...

    Corey, it's a little nebulous, but I'm looking at leaving as early as the 20th, as late as early January. It will depend on a certification test I need to take before I abscond (into the night, with Texas in my rearview mirror, never for these eyes to take part of again).

    Bitter? Oh, no.....
