This is a complete gimmick but if you are working a pitch at night you can just set one of these puppies up and gaze at the night sky. Watch how many folks you start to get hovering around your area. The dual telescope setup is a part of my steampunk culture and character so it fits.

You don't need a fancy expensive "jobby" any decent one will give you a nice
view of the luna. It certainly beats having to swallow a balloon, yikes....

Yes, it folds up into a briefcase! :kermit:


Have you heard of the Starman?

He has a flat-screen TV hooked into a big-diameter PVC telescope

Dificult question... it depends of month of the year, city...

There are places where people never saw a busker before...

There are some interesting portuguese buskers too...

If you could turn the telescope to this side, maybe you could find some pitch and tell me...
