That's a beautiful thing. I've got to break my telescope out again next week.

That is the scope he is using. As I stated elsewhere, I'd have a shroud on that thing to defend my mirror from the public and stray light (mostly other people dropping stuff on the mirror tho') Also the eyepieces in the video are these and there is no way in hell I'd use those for the public. I use $30-$50 glass for the public; if they fuck up the glass pitch it or use it for experiments and not stress too much.

I need to get a telescope. There's countless places with next to no light pollution around in my area, need to make the most of that.
