this just seems unbelievable.  I just can't say enough about Orion Telescopes and binoculars.  I was just about to bust from the joy of hearing my scope is coming to me already!  With all the things going on in America, and the world, I get to have my telescope.  I can tell you I do not believe I deserve it any more than someone/anyone else.  I am just grateful!

For those that don't know, I'm a total beginner and have learned so much from the great folks (teachers) here that take the time to share their knowledge and experience with me.  I will keep you posted on my progress with my new passion ;)  Here's a link to my new telescope, but I can't wait to add a pic of it after I get it unwrapped and set up, Denise

PS I apologize if this should go somewhere else.  I hope the mods will move it if I chose wrong, thanks much!

See if you can spot the polar ice cap on Mars.

I will check my sky map and see if I can spot it.  We have some real heavy overcast last 2 days.  Looks like rain.  But I want to also head up river to a campground where it's definitely warmer, like about 80 up there ;)
