Geoff likes the FunScope

Geoff has one of these mini-Dobsonian 76mm reflectors. He likes it!
I'm finding the 76-mm is living up to its name "FunScope"! For 50 bucks it's an amazing little telescope. With a 15x minimum power I'm finding I hardly even use the red-dot finder...I just sweep until I find what I'm looking for. Mostly last night I was observing sitting slumped down in a garden chair with the mini-Dob mount resting on my chest!
He was using it to view comet Hartley 2! He also reported M33 obvious in it. Wow.


Geoff confirmed he has the Orion FunScope. Comes with red-dot finder, 20mm, and 10mm eyepieces, which he suspects are Kellners.
