Hi Guys I am new to this forum but have also found it very useful! I went out last night with my new Celestron 6SE. Alignment of the go to was not easy but I'm pretty sure I will crack it tonight. I've ordered an external power tank as using AA batteries is a waste of time and money. Optics are great and I got a clear view of Venus, Mars and a few stars. No doubt I will be asking for advice soon - mainly where there are good dark skies near Southampton!
