[2012-09-01] First time joining Weixing in his obs in the grass field. I never see the moon so bright, so big! He helps to show me other stars and nebula. Man it is great! Much thanks to him. Now left with the question: where to start when I feel like a complete idiot evey time I look at an astronomy book ~.~

[2012-07-30] A quick online search for binoculars tells me that for beginners with a budget <USD200, Nikon Action 10×50 is quite good. Will read more about it and update here.
