First and foremost observing love: naked eye.
Last but not least, telescopes.
And I sometimes dabble with cameras.
Quote:For anything bigger than a 90mm, Sky Atlas 2000.0 is great in the field, and the Sky Atlas 2000 Companion has info about every object on the charts, and, more importantly, it's in numerical order.

Quote:I just wish Sky Atlas 2000 wasn't so big! Wait, no I don't...if it were smaller, it would be less useful.
What I wish for is a stand/table arrangement to make it less awkward.
Quote: A music stand works well for me, and some others, to hold an atlas nearby for reference.
