.... back yard astronomer ================= Don't forget to look at the moon often. Its a play ground of fun if you throttle up the magnification!
Quote:I wander if I can reel this in visually with my 17.5" ?
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.
Quote:Did anyone catch this information about ISON being accompanied by 2 other visible comets come this November.

Quote:I got my Astronomy magazine special edition in the mail today. The first half is mostly comet stuff in general and the second half is ISON. It's 88 pages long.
Quote:Even if the comet turns out to be a dud...
