Hello Skydog, Sorry for the delay in responding - still figuring out how this site works. I got a Celestron VX 6 Refractor - the VX mount is an upgraded GoTo Equatorial - built a little heavier, more powerful motors. April should be incredible for us stargazers: Mars in opposition, Sun acting up, Saturn all night, Lunar eclipse, meteor showers, etc...
Hello, I joined a few weeks ago. Have never blogged before and am still trying to figure out how this works. Astronomy is easy - blogging??? Live in Eugene Oregon - lots of cloudy / rainy days but when its nice it's really nice. Just ordered a 6-inch refractor to add to and upgrade my 3.5" refractor. Look forward to sharing ideas with you all... Bruce A. Hindrichs (aka highlander)
