  1. Just had my scope out for a quick session got Saturn, Mars and the moon. Managed to get Saturn barlowed with my 10mm for the first time clouds rolled in the other day before I could manage it. Got a quick pic of the moon through my phone [ATTACH]88567[/ATTA[ATTACH]88567[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]88568[/ATTACH]CH] which aren't too bad considering ha. Loved Saturn tonight brilliant viewing. Can't wait to get ny bigger scope in a few weeks.
  2. It's the scope I bought for my 5 year old son to get into star gazing and wee having loads of fun ( sky's permitting ) was meant to get 130p but they had none in stock and my son didn't want to wait another 2-3 weeks why one came into stock. Greater starter scope for looking at the moon Venus mars and Jupiter and its moons can easily see the bands on on Jupiter with the supplied EP's investing in either a dob or get 130p syn scan next. In couple weeks. Or I might just get a syn scan mount for this scope and a dob for my self then upgrade 706 to 130 at a later date .
  3. Been awful weather all day here in sunderland and sky's are starting to clear
  4. Gimme a shout if you decide to go gazing I would love to pop along
