My New Observing Buddy

My son has no intention of sleeping early last night, with nothing to do around, I thought of offering him a bit of astronomy. I went to set up my meade etx125 on the balcony and waited for the moon to show up since it was a bit cloudy that night. I do not know if he enjoyed much of it (except playing with the telescope) but at least he could tell where the Moon is.

I will never ask my kids to take astronomy, they could be whatever they want, but I will open opportunities to them to love the science as much as I do.
