As I have in years past, I set up my smallest Dob, a 6" Orion SkyQuest XT6, last night so that the trick-or-treaters could have a look at Saturn.

We routinely set up a couple of scopes in the driveway for the trick or treat crowd. Though our street does not get a lot of traffic, and much of it is centered on very young kids. However, several adults typically come back for a better view after their little ones are done.
