The “Globularium”

Borrowed a cute little 6- inch Orion  Starblast reflector telescope from the Albuquerque Astronomical Society’s loaner scope program yesterday and put it through its paces last night.  Here’s a quick sketch from my log book of just one of the handful of globular star clusters I star-hopped to using it.

The Starblast is a blast to use, it sets up in 0 seconds, is sturdy and gives great views of the sky.

This scope reminds me of a Chihuahua that doesn’t know it’s a little dog and runs with the big dogs.  Fearless!
