After weeks of planing by you and some of your friends. The day has arrived, and in a few hours the quadrantids meteor shower will be at its peak. Now, you are all ready, telescope packed along with objectives, filters, and microfiber cloth. Also, you bring a cooler filled with refreshments and a camping chair. Then you announce your departure to the whole world via. Facebook and Twitter. Hours later, arriving during civil twilight, after choosing the perfect spot, it begins. Amazed at how clear the sky is, how bright the stars are, and how little light pollution there is, you set up your telescope. Once assembled you reach to switch on your finderscope only to find it has been on, for weeks. Being persistent, you don't give up, you decide to mend it.
