Binocular Day

We drove up to Connecticut to visit with the cousins - Maureen and Tracy and some of their children.  It was a really nice day hanging out with everyone.  Brendan, shown at top, mentioned that he and some friends were going to Cherry Springs, Pennsylvania, at the end of the month, to camp and look at the stars.  I asked if he had binoculars, and he said he didn't.  I went out to the car and found my $99 pair of 15x70 binoculars and said that he should take them with him for stargazing.  So we went outside to test them.  Then Keera brought her binoculars out.  They had an unusual anti-reflection coating on them which made the objective lenses bright yellow-orange.  I thought that would make a picture.
