Orion in a T shirt. Here in Turks Caicos.
I,m not going to tell you the temperature, because you likely don't want to know, unless you too are
in the Caribbean.
Yes, I can officially state that observing Orion in a t shirt and shorts, is a darn sight better than observing it
in a Canada Goose Winter coat.
That's what I did last night, with the Canon 10 x 30 is image stabilizing binoculars.
I'm staying in a condo, and just found out my neighbour Ed, next door, has a Meade telescope.
Now Ed, is in the business of manufacturing precision parts for the aerospace industry.
So I was thrilled thinking he probably has a Lightswitch 6" or 8" SCT or LX200 even.
As it turns out, he has a meade 70mm refractor on an alt-azimuth mount. He's yet to see Jupiter
with it, so is he ever in for a pleasant surprise this week.
Ok back to the Turk's head draught, er.... I mean the business at hand here and celebrating
I'll do that as much as I can while I'm here, and you can too.
Celebrate that right now, many Celestron telescopes are on sale including deals on the
CGEM & CGEM dx. at www.khanscope.com
