Here's to us, by God! To us, and that...and privileges of youth. Here's to us and what we were. And what we'll be.

...And what we'll be.

It's almost a shame that the catchy headline is going to detract from how completely cool this telescope and it's price are.

I'm just a poor boy nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
give him a scope and he'll go all sciencey.

My wife showed me this a couple of weeks ago. I think we're getting the family kids this for birthdays and such.

So I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said FRESH and it had dice in the mirror
If anything, I thought that this cab was rare, but I thought, man, forget it - "Yo, homes, to Bel Air!"

I pulled up to the castle around 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabbie, "Yo, homes, smell ya later!"
Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air.

There is so much light pollution near me you are lucky to see more than a dozen or so stars on any night. Not much point in getting a telescope if I can't actually see anything with it.

And just think...years from now, she's be at Arecibo, listening for alien signals from the stars on a gigantic radio telesscope. And then, suddenly: she'll star in a crappy movie.

Perhaps they could put one aside for me...for me...FOR MEEEEEEEEEEEE

Its construction is extremely simple, so a small child can assemble it in minutes with a little help from a grown-up

Please. Ikea furniture kicks my ass...

Well I am betting one of these will actually WORK, unlike most of the cheap refractors and reflectors they sell in department store kid science sections. Typically gifted to kids by grannies and uncles.

I'm looking at YOU, Meade...

...well, trying to look; the image is all blurry and could be anything...

Most of the stuff that this scope would be good for viewing should be visible from pretty much anywhere.

I bought a bunk bed from Ikea, showed my 8 and 10 year old girls how to "read" the instructions, made them sort the pieces out, helped them build one side and told them they needed to build the rest if they wanted to sleep in a bed that night.

It took them about 4 hours.

Magnifico!

Hate to be that guy, subby, but the word is Bismillah, not Bismillach.

Oooh, a telescope I can actually afford on what little my astronomy jobs pay! :)

/and I wish I could take a gross of these with me to some third-world country and hand them out to schools...

Clever marketing.

It's actually Bism Allah, Arabic for "in the name of God." It's how every verse of the Qur'an starts.
