A very good point. For telescopes less than 4", the book _Turn Left
at Orion_ is very good at showing you what you'll actually see through
your scope. I strongly recommend you get a copy even if you decide on
a larger scope. And, for that matter, before you buy the scope.
PS again: i have an (older) copy of the book you can look at if you do
visit to see the 'scope.
