    The Celestron 15×70 binoculars arrived on Saturday, 4 days early — yay for the US Postal Service and their Saturday delivery!  There were brief openings in the clouds that night so I checked out the Pleiades which were absolutely beautiful in such a large, bright viewfinder (compared to my old 8×21 binos).  The vertical alignment was off by quite a bit; but yay again, for the Internet this time — some detailed instructions helped to fix the problem.  There's no way I would have found the adjustment set screws on my own, since they're underneath the glued-down rubberized weatherproofing.

    Next thing will be a good tripod.  My big old photo tripod acts like a torsion spring with these large binoculars — left right left right….
