Have you ever seen Saturn's rings or Jupiter's moons? Come see them & share the view with the public. We set up on the pier or other places with a good crowd & entice the passerby to stop & look at the wonders of the Universe. No telescope needed, but bring one if you want--we can teach you how to use it.
