    Some folks have asked what equipment I use for observing. For LEO's (low
    earth orbit) objects, I have used 12x60 Garrett binoculars for years, until
    4 weeks ago, when I had shoulder surgery. Due to very limited use of left
    arm, I started using Garrett Gemini LW 20x80 binoculars on a Series 500
    fluid pan head and tripod, which I am still learning to use.
    For geosats I often use my Orion XT Classic 12" Dobsonian, and star hop. I
    don't image.
