You're an erstwhile astronomer, but the most advanced equipment you have is a pair of binoculars? Tired of craning your neck to make observations? Well, worry no longer! Here's a nifty trick that is also a fun and easy way to show people the stars and planets. In this Instructable, I will show you a simple way to make observing the skies easier.
Items you will need:
-a large flat mirror, at least 1 ft square. A couple feet on a side would be perfect.
-binoculars or spyglass
-some kind of support. A 2x4 works great.
-some clean dry rags (optional, but recommended)
-an outdoor table, but a level patch of ground should work too
