    Hi,   I have sort of set a goal of getting a lot of small scopes to kids this coming year.   We all see the little 4.5 inch reflectors,  and tiny refractors that turn up after christmas.   These can be tweaked to be useful.   They need documentation, and usually, decent eyepieces.  So help out.....we need stickers to put on the scopes identifying who we are, we need lowcost plossl eyepieces,  and simple books and articles decribing how to stargaze, do astronomy projects, etc.

    An offer like that is hard to turn down. Even binoculars would make a good first telescope for youngsters.
