  9. :icon_salut:hi everyone love the picture Ivymike started keeping a diary on my nights of spotting the stars ( my wifes idea ) monday morning between 1.30 am and 4.45 am from east to west saw callisto, europaand one of its moons, Io and ganymede. lovely jupiter also crescent moon very nice but best of all pleides magnificant stars may have seen mars not sure as big tree was in the way and tried to get in between it a lovely clear night still not sure when to use the barlow x 2 lens used it to get beter detail on jupiter but was just jumping all over the place then tried it on the planet mars and couldn't get it at all by the way used it with a 25mm wide angle long eye relief and also a 10mm super lens so if anyone could let me know when the best time to use it is it for dso's or just plain spotting i would be so grateful thanx jimmythemoonlight also great pictures everyone in the pow's and also to the two winners great stuff.:downtown:
