I watched it in 8F weather, first spending a half hour messing with my
sister's telescope. I finally quit trying to align the thing by using
the "finder" and just lined the telescope with an approximate direct line
between the viewfinder and the moon. It took 30 seconds, and I had the
moon in the viewfinder!
Kinda neat to watch, even if it was backwards.
Marching to the beat of a different drum is great... unless you're in
Nice thread! I haven't been visited rec.woodworking for a long time,
but deja'd my way in looking for info on router planes. I'm sort of an
amateur astronomer, and spend most of my time in sci.astro.amateur, (a
fine amateur astronomy group which for some months has been suffering
badly from severe attacks from trolls, jerks, and nutballs.) It's fun
to see the woodworkers enjoying a look at the night sky!

Marty.. I enjoy the OT stuff almost as much as the wood stuff..
I've also found that groups that discourage the OT stuff usually dry up and blow
away, as groups like this keep interested folks here..
