    Why can't i see M51

    I can observe them from my garden, I do have LP, as long as the Moon is out of the way, and the seeing is reasonably good. I can't find it though a 27mm , I tend to use an 18mm and once I am on it I use a 12mm which gives a reasonable view, you don't get those wonderful spiral arms that you see in images, but you get both in the same field of view, I also use an observing hood, which helps alot.

    I totally agree with recceranger, both myself and my wife enjoyed it, great acting, and the way it was filmed was totally in keeping with the era, the courage of those guy's was unbelievable.

    View from the office...

    It's clear here, I have looked at the cloud maps and it looks really good up your way, have a great night, I'm sure you will.

    Large moon mosaic. 100 megapixel

    Wow, the detail is superb, a lot of work and effort has gone into your fantastic image.
  14. You will be happy with WO , it works well, the helical focuser is a godsend, I have had one for five years or maybe longer, works well in the frac. Clear Sky's.

    Shall we get rid of the moon?

    Without our Moon my observing time would be less than half, I love our Moon and couldn't do without it, long live the Moon.
