With a medium telescope like mine, I enjoy the Moon, a place of many craters. You can not reach this place but only with a powerful aircraft to get you there, and a suitable cosrum to survive. But it is still difficult to land on such rugged area, and thats why you can not find in the history of flight to the Moon, missions that have been carried out on its south pole.
The Moon is very large and I wonder sometimes, how can a body like this, is orbiting Earth, so big that can be classified as a planet? It is not just a satellite similar to those of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, which should be be hard to observe them with a telescope, but the Moon is a planetoid that is right here in our garden, which you can admire, with or without an optical device.
For those who have not seen a planet with their eyes, you want to see one? Look up and there she is, beautiful, bright, and large: Selena (Moon).
