If only I had a mountain top home in Eastern Arizona (and a lot of loose cash). I still have the astronomy book my grandmother gave me for my 9th or 10th Birthday. "Someday, man may walk on the moon." :cool-new:

I have a 10" Oddessy scope... that would fit INSIDE that monster! Those Cassegrain-type scopes are amazing... though I usually think of them as small or compact.
