Default My first experience with a telescope

I remember my first telescope and my first views when I took it outside. My telescope was a 2.5 inch refractor but when I saw the moon for the first time, I was in awe. I could not believe the detail I was seeing. I had never seen the moon that close up before (only in pictures). But I loved it and since then I have been hooked on the night sky and astronomy in general. My second scope was 4.5 inch reflector and with that I saw my first images of Saturn and Jupiter. It was so amazing to see the beauty that the night sky holds. I may no longer own or use a telescope but, I love looking at images online with more close up detail of the planets and even things I never got to see such as nebulas and meteor showers.
