space is mostly black and white.
I showed a friend the moon with my telescope.
and he said "why is it black and white?
do I need a better telescope?"
the moon is just gray dust.
I like the telescope with a mirror.
you get more light (see more stars)
and it is short.
you can find good Free programs on the web
to find stars and planets.
you just need to know the north.
some give you the angle to set the telescope to.
winter is the best time. it stays darker longer.
when the moon is full it makes it a little hard to see the smaller stars.
I am in a city now. it gives me a lot of light bleed.
the light reflects of the sky.
the moon is a grate start.
but its very bright. so look at it last.
so you keep your night vision.
you should find Jupiter next. the moons are grate.
you can find them very easily.
venues at sun set or sun rise.
on the horizon.
if saturn is not to far from us.
you can see the rings.
dress for very cold!
