Takahashi FS - 102 Fluorite Doublet Apochromat
Feb 20 2015  While my nine year old son and I were out in our rural backyard one clear evening this past Fall, my son gazed up into the sky and remarked on the endless number of stars visible to him. He was especially drawn to a couple of extraordinarily bright objects. " Hey dad, there's the North Star ", he exclaimed. As I looked up at the bright object that he was referencing, I advised him that he had found the planet Jupiter. "Wow", Jupiter, he said! I then proceeded to point out Saturn, Polaris, the alignment of the pointer stars in the Big Dipper to find Polaris, etc. I then ran into the house and dug out my old Minolta 10x50's and gave him a glimpse of M-42, of course, after outlining the asterism of Orion the Warrior.

Binocular Universe: Going to the Dogs
Feb 02 2015  As the owner of three dogs, I always look forward to the annual Westminster Dog Show held every February in New York City. Westminster attracts thousands of the finest canines from around the globe to vie for the coveted title of Best in Show. The sky also puts on its own dog show every winter. We have Canes Venatici, the Hunting Dogs, rising in the northeast, Canis Minor, the Small Dog, high in the south, and Canis Major, the Large Dog, in the south-southwest.
