  1. Lots of things, but I still really get a buzz out of looking at Saturn, Jupiter and Venus through a small telescope. These are the observations that Galileo made 400 years ago that changed the way we looked at the Universe (Galileo paid a bit of a price though) and I love the fact that we can re-enact this an see what he saw. Plus, I could look at the Moon forever through a small telescope – that is what hooked me on astronomy when I was six years old.
