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. It’s also in one of the sidebars on the right of this page, so maybe it’s actually my #1 favorite poem.
