Went out last night around 10:30pm. Let me be the first to say that I was wrong on saying that I say Alberio last night. I must have seen another double in that area. I did actually think I would be able to see the color the stars but you can, blue and orange. I tried to search out Andromeda Galaxy but couldn't seem to find it, need to take a chart out with me I suppose. Decided against my better judgement to actually get up around 5:00 on purpose. I was rewarded quickly by finding Orion. Just below his belt were a couple of double stars. I tried to use my Telescope to see some detail in Venus, Jupiter and Saturn but I couldn't.

I use my 7x50 binoculars usually, the telescope is a Tasco... probably will upgrade since it seems this is becoming addictive.
