Smile "The Pleiades", or "Seven Sisters"...

I've since learned the $85 Celestron Skymaster binoculars are made in the USA.

(San Francisco, but close enough).


A different neighbor demonstrated his IS binoculars at night. He pointed at the "Seven Sisters" (The Pleiades), a seven-star cluster.

He directed me to focus there, and press the stabilize button. It was impressive to see more than 30 stars suddenly appear within the cluster. It's hard to forget that moment when viewing the "Seven Sisters" today with the naked eye.

"Seven Sisters" in Japanese—as reflected on every hood ornament with that name is "Subaru".
