Don't worry... i'm not peering into people's houses, i'm just wondering what kind of results you can expect using a telescope to look at the night sky through an upstairs window.
i'm thinking about getting an 8-inch dobsonian but i live in an upstairs flat, so it will basically be a pain to take it downstairs every night (...not impossible, but i can't see me doing it too often).
i do, however, have a great window looking out onto the sky. and luckily it's over a load of trees and gardens so there aren't too many lights around either (i have some handy trees shielding me from the other buildings).
it's probably a dumb question... but does looking through a glass window effect the image in any way?
the only way of opening the window would be to smash it, and I don't fancy doing that!
