    The free shipping coupon on the telescope appears to have expired yesterday. Too bad. I was going to bite, but extra $5 for a refractor telescope shoved it from “why to” to “why.”

    Now, if only I could find a decent reflector at this price…

    Rikf, Agreed! It even does a better job than the Royal I have – which did a much better job than the old Eureka.

    But, RE: watching it: at least you got some robotic entertainment.
