Bought a telescope the other day at a yard sale. Only $20, a smoking deal! Was going to look at Mars and Jupiter tonight, but the skies are cloudy. Set it up anyway and took a picture of it. Played with the picture a bit to go along with one of my favorite poems, “The Heart of Herakles,” by Kenneth Rexroth.
