My wife just thinks I'm the biggest geek ever when I picked back up my love of astronomy a few years back! Anytime I pulled out my scopes coaxed her over to the eyepiece...all she could muster was "meh".

Only when I picked up my 16" Starfinder and showed her the double cluster did I get..."now that looks pretty cool"!

I'll take that as a win!

My buddy Reuben's wife is glad that we're out using telescopes instead of out boozing, gambling and patronizing strip clubs. On the other hand, Dan's wife calls us the "Veritable Nerd Herd". Oh the slings and arrows!
