We went to a liquidation place and they had a Mead DS-2130AT for a song and a dance. I have always wanted a REAL scope and I just could not pass on this deal. It a 5 inch Newtonian Reflector Telescope. It has GOTO that I though was pretty cool.
It all started when I was a kid, I just loved the night sky. There was a planetarium at the nearby collage. They ran a 12 week class on the universe. I lost count of the times I went to see it, it was more then 5 times! I still love planetariums
