Can I see it without a telescope?
You sure as hell can! Every so often, you can see the ISS in your night sky. To us on Earth, it looks like a bright star moving

Wow! This is great. Too bad I’m living in a shitty-weather country. (You got an app for that?) But summers are great. It’s a small city, soon summer nights we can see a lot of crap spinning around in the sky. I’m a big fan of the

I’m an amateur astronomer. I have two, average telescopes that I put to great use in the Spring and summer. I love seeing the expression on someone’s face when they see Jupiter or Saturn with their own eyes
@Mykle1 Fantastic! I have a simple bird watcher’s Fieldmaster ED60DS I got just for fun, and a few months ago, I was checking this “star” and it was Jupiter and 4 of its moons, crisp as ever. Showed it to the family and everyone was screaming of joy!
Exactly! Great fun to be a part of, and discover, our amazing universe.
I have an inexpensive Astromaster LT80 AZ - but the cheap tripod mount really is difficult to. Been wanting to upgrade, but haven’t managed to yet.
Cool. I have an Astromaster 114 and a Meade Infinity. They are just enough to enjoy some casual viewing from the backyard. Like you, I want better but . . .
@Mykle1 Hi. I just sent you a PR fixing some space/TAB issues, please feel free to merge.

One of them is wrong?
