I was looking for a telescope for my son and I to use. My friend told me he had one I could have, if I came to get it. I didn't have high hopes. I was pleasantly surprised. :)

That's what I said. Evidently, a guy gave it to my buddy after my buddy did some work on his house. My buddy has had it for a few years and never looked through it. He told he kept it around "just waiting for somebody to ask if he knew anyone who had a telescope." :D

I can't say I'm into it but we were up north last week having a campfire and my son in law got his 28 - 80 bird watching lens out and we could see the rings on Saturn. I thought that was pretty neat. Something you and your son could enjoy together for sure.
You should be able to get some great viewing with that one. Some have hook ups for a camera so you can take pics as well.

Great score.

I prefer watching birds over the rib of a 12 ga.

Oh, and Brad's idea might pan out as well.
