Jerry came in to alert me the Moon was high in the sky, i.e., above our trees. He set up the Meade LX200 for me. After polar aligning it for viewing all evening, we used the directional controls to locate the Moon and to find some of its features. Also used my 10x30 IS binoculars. Clear night with no clouds. 19° C.
