I've very pround of my Astronomy Life List
"program" for the Palm. I work better with goals and keeping
I bet my childhood Gilbert reflector
around anymore. I rescued
somebody else's childhood Jason 60mm refractor at a garage sale for
$5. Actually not for the scope, but for the 40mm Celestron
Kellner eyepiece that was included. Unfortunately, I couldn't see
ANYTHING out of the scope after I got it home (it was described as
being in the garage for about 15 years). Disassembly showed that
the front doublet was a little cloudy
It was easy to disassemble and clean
me another scope to play with.
I took it outside since it was a full moon, and took some pictures of the moon!
