Man, I actually own a telescope.

Sure, it's a NASA approved Questar my granddad bought back in 1970 (making it twice my own age, for those keeping track at home). It still works, damnit!

I should probably get out and take a look.

this one doesn't even require a telescope...naked eye will do....just get outside.

Oh, I know.

But with a telescope I could see it better.

For this sort of viewing, decent binoculars are better.

True enough. The point is to see several objects at once...

I JUST LIKE LOOKING AT JUPITER THROUGH A TELESCOPE, OKAY.
