The telescope came back and I am very happy. Funny thing is, they were very clear to me that I should only send the scope, nothing else. But they returned it with everything! New backpack, eyepieces, tripod, electronics, everything. So now I have 2 of everything but the scope. I’m sure in some way that was the most cost effective way to do it. Sure.
Since I got it back, I have seen Jupiter and her 4 big moons. I was amazed. We are going to get the camera attachments soon so that I can more easily take photos. Yahoo!
