My GF's Christmas present arrived via FedEx yesterday.
Her new Orion Skyquest XT6 Dobsonian telescope is much, much bigger than I expected. It's quite a monster actually. Originally I had planned on buying her the smaller XT4.5, but it was out of stock. So naturally I thought, "upgrade!"
I'm a real dumbass though. After ordering it, I realized that Orion is located in Cupertino. I could've easily just drove my ass over there and save $40 in shipping.
Oh well. It's always cool having new toys around the house, and this massive contraption should be fun on warm summer evenings, and on car-camping trips in the future.
