I LOVE astronomy. I started out with a small cheap refractor when I was young. I moved on to reflectors and large models. Then, one day when we were moving, my eldest son who was 5 at the time, fell upon it before I could take it down and pack it up. The lens was cracked. I went to build my own but the work involved took too much time away from my family. I scrapped it until the kids are off and on their own. I have been without a telescope for 10 years! We have an astronomy park here and every Friday when it’s clear, they are supposed to pull out a 32 inch telescope for the public, but I’ve gone there 3 Fridays and no one came out to unlock it. So, mom and dad got me a cheap little refractor to ease my pain lol! I have been able to get this baby target many a wondrous sight. I love anything I can use to see the universe. Don’t look down on these “toy” telescopes, they could be the very thing that inspires you or young ones into a future of space and technology.
