I learned something new today-"Digiscoping" so while I do not have a high powered telescope of any kind, I do have a hand crafted, hand-held Kaleidoscope that my SIL gave me years ago. It uses a variety of colored marbles to create the effects you see when looking through the tube. It's an amazing work of art and this is what it allowed me to do this morning. Took some coordination to line up my ipod touch camera lens through the triangular view of the Kaleidoscope, but I managed to get some great images. I'll be playing with this new toy for a few days!
