Subject: Etx 70at Sent: Tuesday, August 29, 2006 11:43:41 From: bomartin (firstname.lastname@example.org) this weekend at a estate sale, i found a etx 70at scope with case, trypod, filters, three lens, instruction book and electronic eyepiece, the woman had it for sale for 50.00 (fifty dollars) and no one was buying, when i ask what the story was, she informed me she had purchased it for her husband a year ago but last month went outside to see how he was doing and the scope was not in the up position, i wanted to ask which neighbor it was pointed at, but knew better, as she was not in a good mood, i purchased it, not knowing anything about scopes but it seems like a nice one, saturday night i went out and looked at the moon which was going down and was greatly surprised, the detail, i had never really seen before, then when to Jupiter ( i did not know it was jupiter at the time) (just another bright star) surprised me ever more. i had never seen the moons nor did i even know they were there, i did not use the controls as i had not read the book, just pointing and looking, i am 56 years old and never saw jupiter, until saturday night, i set for some time just in amazement of that planet, i put the scope up and started looking on the internet for sites to help me. you were one, i have spent some time on your site and like a little kid, filled with excitement of the next time, i get to use it. thank you for having a site like this, i look forward to many more nights of star viewing. i have so much to learn, sincerely bomartin pensacola, florida usa
