Thread Name: BS: SPACE - James Webb Telescope LAUNCH-Dec 2021
Subject: RE: BS: SPACE - James Webb Telescope LAUNCH
I have a telescope that was my father's; he lived at the beach and I imagine he used it to watch boats and whales and whatnot when he wasn't watching the moon and stars. I've set it up in the driveway with the porch lights off. I can get into an area that is away from the streetlights (the back yard would be better but the dogs are a hazard to the tripod unless I lock them up.) I don't have a connection for the camera on the telescope, though that would be nice. I have also set up the Canon camera with the long lens on a tripod to catch lunar events.
