I found an intriguing item.
It appeared to be a fountain pen, but on closer examination it opened out into a small refractor.
It works well considering the 1/2 inch aperture of the objective glass.
I christened it ...The Mighty Atom...
Last night the clouds were sauntering once again around Pembrokeshire, and the Moon low on our neighbour's trees, could occasionally be glimpsed.
I grabbed the Mighty Atom, put it over the lens of the digicam and captured this shot......
It may be a toy to most, and only cost £1, but the Mighty Atom has pride of place in my astronomy collection.
Also I have found, that if you reverse the scope and look through the objective glass, it makes a really handy microscope... :0)
If you ever happen upon a box full of dubious junk, and see a Mighty Atom, buy it...you won't be disappointed..
