Why I love astronomy

Astronomy is one of my major hobbies. I have a 10” Discovery PDHQ Dobsonian that I take out waaaay to infrequently. But when I do get out, I see things that are really beautiful. The last time I went out, a few weeks ago, I saw this, one of my favorite celestial sights. It looks great in this picture, but I saw it with my own eyes. Clear and bright. That was fun.
