    Aug 27, 2008, 9:04 PM - Holy Moly I won!! #1

    I never win anything. But I was at a craftshow this past weekend and I bought a raffle ticket. We left early since it died out quickly and I just got phoned that I won this a GPS - LX90-ACF Meade telescope, or you can see one here http://www.meade.com/lx90-acf/index.html. I can't wait to pick this guy up tomorrow! Not bad for only a buck!

    No I'm sure its not a scam, it was a big rally to help breast cancer awareness and they gave all the other prizes at the end of the day. I am going to keep it. I think i might be fun when I'm bored at night.

    Thats a good one, my uncle has it. You can hook it up to a laptop and just tell it what star to find and it does it all for you. Congrats.

    Ooh thats pretty sweet. My dad has a Meade (no clue what model) but those things are awesome. I need to tell him to bust that thing out again so we can do some stargazing. I think my dad has an 8" one.

    I tell you, It's very breathtaking to see with your own eyes, the ring of Saturn, the storm on Jupiter, and the icecaps on Mars.

    Will yours come with a programmable motor that will turn the telescope to compensate for the earth's rotation to keep the object you are look at from drifting out of view?
