First Light with Patricia

At the Oregon Star Party, Renate was so excited about the dark skies and what you can see that she saved all her money (and even had a cookie sale) for a 10" Dobsonian Telescope. 

Two weeks ago, it arrived and Renate called it "Patricia".
And last night it was just clear enough to catch first light: the Moon, the Pleiades and classifying several stars by color. She was so excited (and, yes, me too!)
