Go Big or Go Home
With astronomy, aperture is almost everything, for the more you have, the more you can resolve. There are times and reasons when you DON’T want a lot of aperture, but if you’re trying to chase down members of the Virgo Cluster, the Ursa Major Galaxy Groups, Einstein’s Cross, Stephan’s Quintet, or other members of the elusive Hickson 100 Galaxy Groups, yeah, you really want The Big Dog. The Big Dog is more like the Big Dob, SkyClops (TM), which is fully described here: SkyClops, the Big Dob

My very first telescope is the 12″ Meade Lightbridge. It is a long story that I will not bore you with but, suffice it to say that, after a few repairs, none of which had anything to do with Meade, my first scope has been restored to its original glory. Offering portability and pretty good limiting magnitude, it is an excellent choice when circumstances or time just do not permit The Big Dob. He was a little unstable there for a while, and got deemed the Frightbridge (TM), but all that is now behind us, and he has now been happily renamed The Outta Sight Bridge (TM).

But Wait!! There’s More!!!
If you call now, for only $19.99, we’ll ship you TWO, yes TWO, of these AMAZING Ginsu knives.
OK, not really, but I do like to use that phrase. Humor is the grease in the wheels of life and, since I am writing this the week of the late, very great Robin Williams death, I feel like trying to be as funny as possible. He will be very sorely missed.
But, I digress. Yes, I have more. So many more. My collection includes an 8″ Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain, replete with an object library and tracking, a 4″ Celestron refractor, a 2″ Galileoscope (which was a PHENOMENAL project that bears repeating. If you don’t own one, get one), a set of 25 x 100 Celestron astronomical binoculars and last, but certainly not least, my uber handy Nikon 10-22 x 50 zoom binoculars, which go with me almost everywhere. All but the Galileoscope is pictured below:
