My boyfriend told me There was a way to use laser pointers to star hop. It works best with dobs. Many of the maps show stars that can be easily seen with a pair of binoculars, but not with the naked eye.
He bought a green laser pointer at

Nice to see you autumn,
Actually youngest ds has one of those,
Pretty scary they are, lOL
Otherwise had not heard about using one to see stars,
This time of year we don't see them too often :)

I never used lazer pointers. dangerous things.

helicopter pilots, and jetliners find them dangerous when some idiot points them at the helicopters and jetliners.

  • :smileyhappy: I like astronomy a little.
  • If you want to buy a laser pointer to him, you can contact me. We can organise group buying or ask if it has coupons.
  • I often buy clothes on it. I want cheap.

    Yes when it gets overcast it would be hard. We were wondering if we would be able to see the lunar eclipse, too.
