Family Astronomy
Family Astronomy

It all started when I received an email from Orion about a sale on the Astroview 100mm Eq. I have always wanted a nice telescope since I was a kid, and now was a perfect time to get it. I purchased it with intentions on my family getting into astronomy and eventually graduating up to a more precise scope. After a couple of stargazing nights with my wife and daughter we were hooked, and saw Saturn, Jupiter, and a Nebula. Some really nice views of the moon also. We were a little disappointed in the views we were getting, as we expected more, but we were still pretty excited.

Well as the economy started to get bad, I decided that we would have to sell the scope and maybe someday we could afford to get another one. Well we are still waiting. And Orion comes with another opportunity to maybe start stargazing again. I would like to thank you for getting my family together doing something that is interesting and fun.
