Yep. We purchased it with club funds, so we went with something we could afford (as a college student club), but something fairly nice as well. It pales into comparison to some of the telescopes you might find at an event of our local astronomical association, but it isn't bad.

Personally, I have an 8" Orion Dobsonian (XT8). It's a great all-purpose scope - it's very easy to use and offers a lot of aperture. No goto or tracking, so it's not very good for astrophotography, or finding really dim objects, but it's helped me become a better star-hopper. But it performs quite well, especially in dark-sky locations...I've been able to find and see things such as the Ring Nebula (in very dark skies, and with a lot of time spent). Things like the Lagoon Nebula are very clear.

I have been listening to too much music lately.

On the plus side, I did manage to get a 100% on my first quiz of the year for my Chem class.

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.

*wimpy clarinet fanfair*
:( Well, my sister plays the clarinet, so I guess I would have gotten that had I asked for it.

On another note, today and tomorrow are looking to be rather exciting ( :D ), so that'll make the last bits of summer homework more bearable.

EDIT: I also slept for slightly less than 12 hours last night! Yay for no jetlag!
