It was a dark and stormy night ... Thanks to Charles Schultz(and Snoopy), it was guaranteed that if I ever wrote a book, that would be the opening line. And as things would have it, that opening also describes the first night after I received my new NexStar telescope.

After a innterlude of about four years from my favorite hobby, I was testing the waters with one of the new technological wonders from Celestron.
