  1. Thanks everyone so much. My first question and what a wonderful group of experienced people. I will educate myself and participate as much as possible. All my amature life has been with binoculars. Now that I have a scope I still have so much to learn. Cheers!
  2. Being the proud owner of my first big scope, an Orion XT 10, I turned it to Antares to see the famous double... After two nights of attempts and some on line searches I guess there are several reasons why I could not seperate the Binary pair. #1 Atmosphere clarity #2 More moon light makes it easier to seperate...as it cuts down on the light from Antares which can obliterate the smaller sister. #3 The green sister star was behind Antares I was using my 25mm eye piece at first then I tried my 10mm, no luck either way...I also tried with and without my 2X Barlow with those two lenses. How difficult should it be to split the pair? Thanks
  3. Thats a LNA of a satellite dish... not feet or lights. Thanks everyone...very kind. Dean.
  4. Thanks for the welcome. I would like everyone to know that Conan is a Boxer/Dalmation...not a Pitbull. I think Pitbulls are Boxer/Dalmation want to be's
  5. Hi everyone. I am a 45 yr old medical professional. I live in Cornwall Ontario on the St. Lawerance River. I have been an amature astronomer since I was 10. I finally took the plunge and got myself a DOB Orion XT10 Intelliscope. I have had a wonderful month with this beauty and I look forward to buying a motor platform and a proper camara. I admit that the last month I only got 4 good nights, but they are nights you never forget. Venus, Saturn, Jupiter all wonderful and exciting views from my back porch. I spent a good 45 minutes watching the quarter moon (I call them half moons). Here are a few pics with a handheld camara on the lens. I used a 2X Barlow and 25mm eyepiece and a polarizer filter. 8:30 PM Ontario Canada Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Orion XT10 Intelliscope Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Half Moon Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 North Pole Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Conan the Moon Dog Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22 Shot with Canon PowerShot S2 IS at 2007-07-22
