  1. I tried for m33 last night with the telescope but couldn't see it. I have seen it clearly in a dark sky with 10x42 bins in the past. I'll have to try and get to a dark location to see m33 I think.
  2. I seen the blue snowball nebula for the first time last night through the 150 dob, and its a pleasing sight at 60 times mag. It really does look just like a blue snowball.
  3. I would go for the apollo 15x70s, much lighter and easier to mount than the 100s, also the wider FOV.
  4. If you can get the phillips 32 N, that would be ideal for your latitude. I think as long as you are within 10 degrees of 32 N, it is very usable. Andy.
  5. Hi guys, would the great red spot be visible in my 6 inch dob?. Ive viewed Jupiter a few times but I dont think Ive seen it. cheers Andy
  6. Thanks Neil, thankfully the near 100mph winds have gone and the sky is clear up here, was out earlier tonight and got some good views of the moon and Jupiter etc. cheers Andy

    Hi There

    Thanks for all the replys guys, I managed to get out tonight with the 20x80 bins, and got nice views of the moon and Jupiter and viewed a few of the brighter doubles stars etc. Looking forward to getting the scope and bins out on the next moonless night. thanks Andy.
