My telescope is always full of booze, when I go hunting the Moon.
Must do it one day
I'd much rather look at the telescope itself.
Yes ... many times in the desert and on camping trips. We also had a great telescope at the university where I worked.
YA know, I've tried. But, I could never get decent view. I think I needed a better tripod because everything was so jittery. And, it was always such an odd angle to twist my head around. So, I gave up on telescopes.
Now, I have had fun looking through binoculars at the moon. And of course ended wishing I could see it a little better - maybe I should drag out that telescope again.
It's a viscous cycle!
I bet they're really cool.
I'll bet they're really expensive too.
I'll just keep my membership to the planetarium.
In my early years I was a space nut. Even had a little planetarium in my bedroom. Spent many an evening peerong at the moon thru my little telescope. Even rigged it so I could take photos of the moon.
