My new (to me) binos arrived today...and in central Texas, it's a cloudy night.

I'd rather be stargazing, but the skies will clear soon enough.

They're Swarovski 30x75s. Mainly for terrestrial use, but I can't resist pointing them skyward.

Also...thumbs up to whoever thought of the website name.

Well, doesn't that just figure?

 

Congrats on the wonderful new binos, Lee! I hope that you soon get to enjoy them under the stars.

I set my alarm so I could see Jupiter. Two moons on either side. It was worth getting up early. That really was pretty cool, even though the binos were hand held, resting on the roof of my car. I can't wait for the tripod to arrive.

Now, back to sleep.

I bet it feels like I did one Christmas. I got a brand new fielder's glove, and it rained for the next 6 weeks!
