Yay for cheap optics!

Well, if all goes well for me in the next two hours, I will be the proud owner of a 4.5" CStar Telescope. It's got 375x of zoom, and aparently it comes with a tripod, two eyepieces, and some other stuff. It's not very large, but I figure it will be perfect for my back yard and maybe some astrophotgraphy. I'm rather out-of-town here in my sublease, so I should get a chance to use it out here. I'm tired of waiting for good weather, my wanting to go, and Don's presence at the observatory to all coincide. Hopefully it will be easily transportable so I can haul it around in my car. I'll let you know in about 2 1/2 hours when the auction ends. Then, maybe I'll post the link. Don't want any of you fuckers outbidding me.
