Clear Outside is predicting clear skies tonight until 11 PM...FINALLY...It's supposed to be cold but I'm gonna set up anyway. I want to try out this telescope...It hasn't been a very good vacation so far. I've had a head cold all week and had very little energy. Fortunately, I feel a lot better today and would like to enjoy at least a bit of my time
