    We usually have a great view from where we live! In fact tonight if I look out our back bedroom window the view should be stunning!!!

    The moon is really bright and so is Mars! If you hadn't told us it was Mars I would havbe thought it was just a really bright star.

    We've all been out to see it. Took some bad photos and Steven had a look through the binoculars before bedtime. I've just bought the telescope in after spending an hour checking out the view.

    A really really quick pic, lots of detail visible through the scope tonight - first time I have seen it with the larger telescope
