The moon and my daughter
      #5626456 - 01/16/13 03:59 PM

The kids and I where outside, I was cutting down some brush and we noticed the moon out. So my daughter wanted me to get out the 28x110 binoculars. I already knew the clouds would be coming soon, so I was not going to go out tonight. So we pulled them out and took a guick peek at the moon. I love the wide field of view the binoculars show. The moon is much easier on the eyes during the daytime ( not so bright ). Anyway my daughter really likes looking through my binoculars. Only problem is always having to lower the tripod for her. I realy need so kind of step stool. GOOD TIMES.

Those are nice moments, when you can share the sky with a child. BTW the height problem could also be solved by using a parallellogram mount.

The parallellogram mount is a little out of my price range at this time. But maybe oneday.
