Wink Wearing Egg Foo Yong (...an Expert's Guide)

There is one little secret they haven't told you here... even if you forget everything, simply make a pinhole camera and look for something bright. I.e. Sun, Venus or the Moon. Then project the object onto a piece of paper or card. You mightn't see very much, but it at last you can say you have observed something and not go home with so much Egg Foo Yong all over your face!

One very simple positive suggestion (based on actual experience), get a really crappy eyepiece of not much valuable and just leave it in the glovebox. This works well, and will give you piece of mind!
