    Storm tent recommendation.

    Another vote for the outwell Montana 6 . Has withstood everything the UK weather had thrown at it on the last 4 years. Expensive but with it. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk

    Saturn, Mars and Jupiter last night

    well done you must have been pleased, \Uranus should also have been visible but only earlier in the evening. I had some friends around over the weekend and it was one of the things I showed them. very small spot but pretty impressive to say you have seen it. RK

    Frustrated with new 6" SCT

    I cannot add much to what has already been said as there is a lot of useful information and tips there. Just to say that I also have a Nexstar se 6 and have learnt that taking a little time and effort to ensure that the tripod is level, the date time etc are accurate and to align using a low then high power ep pays dividends. The only other consideration is then to remember where the power cable is so that you don't remove it from its socket 10 mins into a session resulting in having to go through the process again. Hope you persevere with it, its a great scope and the quality of the optics is exceptional. RK

    I finally found Andromeda!

    I remember when I found it for the first time. It was after a long time searching. Once you have found it you wonder why it took so long in the first place. But it will always be much easier from now on.
