Here is a picture of ganymede seen through a 10" scopeJupiters moons

It'll take a little time to write all of these things up, but here is the first.
A guide to making an entry on your BLOG. Wasn't quite what I hoped adding content mid post, but I guess I still need to get...
There's almost no subject on which you can't find a plethora of information and opinion.
For every possible argument there's a counter and several tangential debates.
In my on going hunt for the right starter scope I'm finding that every time I make a decision I'm overwhelmed with opposing or differing views.
I bought a Nexstar6 se as I have always fancied looking at the planets and stars anyway I am all set up but it's been quite cloudy.
I have tried to focus on other things buildings etc but nothing comes into focus I know there is quite a bit turning the knob but nothing seems to happen.

So here is some evidence that It might be possible...
I hope I really will see detail on Ganymede and the other moons.

I was playing with the mount and...
I have recently ordered a 10 inch deluxe Lightbridge since i found out the new ones are better than the old ones...
I dont think somehow that is completely true so I ask anyone who has owned or owns a lightbridge since 2012
(Beacause the new versions came out in 2012).
Are there any problems with it and can u see detail on the planets,deep sky...
Well, you have inspired a new thought experiment in my brain. Corresponding with you is helping to focus my thoughts.
So, one of the main ideas of my hypothesis is that the source and the receiver of the waves, light or sound, are paired in a tandem such that the s...
When I have time I'll get the camera out on a lens/scope and get a proper image but for tonight that's good enough
this is Prabal Sharma, an amateur astronomer from India
On this blog I will be posting astronomy tips and observation photos etc.
I have a celestron 60 az with quality issues, Stellarium on my computer and some star charts and planispheres
hope you enjoy my posts and images
