Did you receive a telescope during the holiday season? I want you to get as much as you can out of it. I don’t want your scope winding up collecting dust or showing up for sale online.

You might be tempted to put off using your new telescope until it warms up, but I think that’s a big mistake. Wintertime stargazing is fantastic! It’s worth bundling up for the big celestial show!
