Hey cool Groundzero. I now live out in BFE & just bought a Celestron telescope. Looks like I can reach out and touch the stars before I scope 'em, then it takes all night to find was I was looking at with my naked eye lol. Haven't seen sky this clear since I spent a lot of time in St Moritz & Zermat, although that was before the Italian smog crept north...(well smog & other 'things')

Dude we MUST be brothers... telescope viewing is new for me too and hope fully DONE can coach us a little more in the finer points. Speaking of DONE...where are you?  

Either way, I think it is breaking up...we'll see very soon. Fukushima + a/several come strikes...hope not.
With no disrespect intended, I'm the Stevie Wonder of the telescope. My first great discovery was a midwest casino spotlight. It looks like quite the find from a long ways away, but after a bit of investigation; the slots and blackjack are at no risk to me or anyone else for that matter. I just emailed 'done' to the two email addresses I have on file.

I got up at 4 central time but the clouds were racing across the sky and I couldn't get a clear view. Maybe tonight.

I was up at 4:30-ish am looking for it this morning too but I have such a terrible view east that by the time the sun got high enough to maybe see anything close to it the glare washed everything out. Maybe I'll have to pack the dogs up and drive up into the mountains to get a decent early morning eastern view.

Potentially Dazzling Comet ISON Now Visible to Naked Eye After Outburst

"In just 72 hours, Comet ISON increased nearly 16 times in brightness.....The comet may continue to brighten as the outburst is still in its early stages."

That thing is A LOT HIGHER on the horizon than I thought. I was expecting to have to see it much closer to the ground level. Maybe there is a chance of seeing it from my house after all. Thanks for that picture.

And I do have a very good binocular. 7X, 35mm Bushnell wide field. Probably 35-40 years old and heavy as an anvil. I just hung 'em on the doorknob. Hope the skies stay clear.

Careful not to ruin the doorknob...lol I have an old pair of Zeiss that are like moving an old CRT T.V. everytime you use them. Gives me a neck ache just thinking about 'em.
