At the weekend, Mr PS went to an auction and came back with this telescope. I don't know too much about it, other than it's a 1967 Japanese Greenkat. It has a 40mm zoom lens, which I believe is tiny compared to modern telescopes. It only cost him £15, so hardly a great loss if it's not powerful enough. I'll be testing it out tonight, weather permitting.
For the astronomers out there, what would be the best budget telescope or minimum specifications for me to take to Skye?
Talking of stargazing, did you the latest Star Trek Discovery trailer? Apart from having the usual fangirl moment when I watched it for the first time, I was overjoyed when one of the characters said his name. Do you know who I mean and why I was so excited to hear it? Watch it to find out, and let me know what you think.
