Retirement Gift

I was fortunate enough to retire from EDS when I transitioned to my new job. My retirement gift came today. Some of the folks that retired got pendants, some got watches and others got golf clubs. I got a Mead DS-2000 Telescope. I've wanted a good telescope for years but could not come off the hip with the money to get one.
It's computer operated and is supposed to be able to locate and track stars. Putting it together was almost like assembling a Toyota but I think I've got it put together. Now comes the daunting task of trying to figure out how it works. I'm supposed to be able to attach a camera to it but I'll have to master the art of locating stuff.
Off to see the stars.
