Summary
  Like everyone else, most amateur astronomers live busy lives. After a long day, the last thing you want as an observer is to have to lug out a large telescope and spend an hour getting it ready before it can be used. Maybe you are going somewhere sure to have dark skies, but you don{u2019}t necessarily want astronomy to dominate the trip. Or you are not quite committed to owning a large telescope, but curious enough to see what a smaller, portable setup can accomplish. These are times when a small 2grab {u2019}n{u2019} go3 telescope, or even a pair of binoculars, is the ideal in{u00AD}strument. And this book can guide you in choosing and best utilizing that equipment.   What makes a telescope fall into the 2grab {u2019}n{u2019} go3 category? That{u2019}s easy {u2013} speed of setting up, ease of use, and above all, portability. This ambitious text is dedicated to those who love to or {u2013} because of their limited time {u2013} must observe the sky at a moment{u2019}s notice. Whether observing from the comfort of a backyard or while on business or vacation far from home, everything you need to know is here. So get started!!     -          Surveys the pros and cons of the various types of equipment, includ{u00AD}ing accessories and mounts, that are available.   -          Advises how to use your grab {u2019}n{u2019} go telescope to visit a wealth and wide variety of objects, from solar, lunar and planetary observ{u00AD}ing to hunting deep sky objects of all kinds
