Maggie helped me set it up and then I taught her how to use the Telrad to sight her object in the sky and use that to slew the telescope to the correct position. It didn't take her too long to find the moon.
She learned very quickly and was soon off to view a nearby star. It was about 8:30 at night and not too dark yet. Plus with brush fires, pollution, thunderstorms, and city lights, the seeing wasn't all that great. Maggie had a great time regardless, and it was fun for me to see her getting so excited. I think, when the weather is a little better, I will let her stay up a bit later so we can view something other than the moon. The moon is cool, and a great first object, but I think she is ready for some planets and maybe a few bright double stars. We will leave the fainter objects for viewing outside of the city lights.
