Here we go!

So the wife and I sat down to get my birthday present. I'm geeked. Here it is. Yep, I'm serious about giving this astronomy hobby a try, and these binocs are very highly rated. And they're well priced IMO, especially when one is simply desiring to test the waters without getting in over their head. Went to the local Astronomy Club meeting last week, the topic was on Galactic Collisions. There are some awesome examples, taken by the Hubble telescope. Sort of like this one of the Antennae Galaxy.

Of course, I've already caught the technology bug, and I'm fixated on this parrallelogram-style mount/tripod. It's a tad pricey though. I wonder if I can make one myself.
