The God's smiled!

Yesterday at 9.25am the DHL man turned up with my new (to me) 30mm Vixen EP - thanks to Rob for selling it.

The usual rule goes - new equipment, cloud for weeks. Last night was clear though! :hello2: The God's were smiling on me.

Seeing was carp though, but mustn't grumble!

Out to see Saturn - never get enough of the planets. Clearly spotted Dione, Tethys and Rhea exactly where S@N graphis said they should be (except on the other side as using a diagonal).

Got a quick glimpse of Lulin as I was scanning about. Wanted to come back to it later, but see next paragraph. Still, there's always tonight!

Next onto the moon - rather ecxellent! The 30mm with a x3 Barlow was just stunning. Such crisp views. Ran out of time to look at anything else!

Sounds like you had a great night whats the FOV of Vixen EP and do you think it would like a fast scope say F4.5

Not sure of the FOV, but it seems nicely wide. I used it in my f4.9 refractor with no problems!
