go-to schmo-to

Credit for this analogy goes to Guy Consolmagno, the funniest Jesuit priest astronomer the world's ever known.

In other news, there is a bright blue comet visible nearly naked eye in the wee hours right now. Hopefully naked eye in the evening by early July. Pretty picture.

A very nice guy on the TAC listserv clued me in to a great dark sky site only an hour away and without any state park bureaucracy to deal with. Any time it's clear and the moon isn't up, I'll take you and force you to let me show off my awesome new telescope. And then shoo you away so I can draw Messiers in blissful tedium.
