Grooving On The Universe From My CouchThere's two telescopes gathering dust in my house.
Due to issues too numerous to mention, they are going to sit there for a while.
Meanwhile, I'm using a wonderful app called "Star Chart" on my Iphone.
No problem with lugging out the Newtonian, no worries about light pollution, next-door neighbors partying on their patio when the sky is transparent and I'm not going out there to be their entertainment. And bugs...and skunks. Or freezing my buns off.
My astronomic joy ride is from my couch, thanks to this app.
Oh, make no mistake, I do have binoculars I still use.
They're awful, really, I need to get a better pair.
