Tell you what though, having a Ferrari parked in the garage, and cruising down to the shops for milk in it is pretty cool .

Then jus sometimes, you get to take it on a country trip and wet yourself.

Those rare still skies even urban bound, are a treat.

Yes - seeing is everything.
When I first got my Newt. 4 or 5 years ago - I looked at Jupiter
many times & all I saw was a fuzzy ball with a few lines across it.
I thought something was wrong with it till I took
it to Mt Baw Baw at nearly 5,000 feet altitude & behold -
Jupiter snapped into view sharp & crystal clear at over 300 magnification.
