I'd be an astronomy hound if conditions were a bit different.  I live in the city where light pollution is a problem.  My weather patterns are such that there are clear skies rarely in the summer, spring, or fall.  The winter skies are often clear and "seeing" is good.  I am not happy when I am cold, so I am not inclined to spend much time outdoors at 4 or 5 A.M. when the temp is low even though conditions are good.

I had an eight inch Dobsonian reflector for a while.  It was a hell of an instrument but it was really heavy, as any competent telescope needs to be.  I became weary of hauling it around because of its bulk.  I now have a mickey mouse little 80mm refractor. It is a good quality instrument but more appropriate for bird watching than for scanning the  Pleiades. (the seven sisters have more than seven objects. I could find them with the eight incher)..... I am told the the badge on Subaru cars are a reference to the Pleiades. ...... Hoop de doo for my Subaru.

Are you an astronomy buff Silver?    I can see Orion on most nights in the southern sky. The old boy has more than three objects in his belt, Only three of them are prominent. Messier objects are nearby. For you he will be in your northern sky if he is visible there at all.  You will be able to see many things that I can not see, 'cause I am on the north side of the equator.

Hell yes! I wanted to be an astrophysicist when I was a kid, but that didn't work out unfortunately...can't get those numbers and formulas into my head to save my life.  ;D

Orion is an easily seen constellation here, and the three bright stars are called the 'Three Marys'.

There's a cool free software called Stellarium if you're interested, where you can see the location and time of appearance of constellations and planets from any point on Earth.

There's an app for tablets where you point the tablet in any direction, including straight down, and can "see" all the stars, planets and galaxies on a map. Includes data about those things as well.. Brilliant!

Almost worth buying a tsblet for alone.

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Hmm, looks like punishable offence, but you are normally so punctillious that to do so would be a fine example of a punctilo - so we'll let you off!
