It's here!

It's here! The Galileoscope is here! Nerdgasm! Look:

I assembled it at work (no dog hair to get caught in the tube) after I had finished up for the day, but I didn't have a camera; so no pix of that, sorry. I was too excited to have it, and I couldn't wait a day.

It took about 20 minutes to assemble, but if I had the instructions from here (PDF), rather than the ones in the box, it would have been about 5-10. (What the hell are these two big O rings for? How do I set up the lenses in the second eyepiece?)

Now if only that damn Sun would go down...

That took a bit of time to show up.

I had almost forgotten about it.

Have fun.

They are saying that for current orders, 4-6 weeks is the delivery time. I guess the factory direct slow boat is cheapest.
