Who's bringing a telescope?

I've been thinking about getting one, anyway, and I was wondering if anybody is bringing one, anyway...new moon and all...god the milky way is going to shine...

Remember the dust. It gets in everywhere and coats everything. I wouldn't want to do that to a good telescope.

Not only the Milky Way but in Aug. Mars is going to be closer to the Earth than it has been in 73,000 years. The ability to see Mars next to the moon is suppposed to be awesome.... even binoculars will be helpful.

I have a ~1973 2&1/2 inch refractor, with a broken tripod, that I'm about ready to freecycle. I'm not sure where the lenses are, though.

Gimme. I'll pay for the postage and I'll send you pictures of the people in the office buildings in downtown Dallas.
