  1. Tempting grab n go for spur of the moment drives to somewhere darker.
  2. I wanted a Tasco as a kid. My old 60mm frac only went up to x75, but the Tasco in the Catalogue (probably Kays) went up to x525. I had a few old library books and could only find the bright planets, so spent a lot of time looking at the moon. I was still amazed by the craters every time I looked!
  3. Thanks for the heads up. It will be a nice break from digging the garden today!

    Thanks Stu. It would mainly get used at home, which is very light polluted. Another vote for the 24mm.

    Thanks Paul, That may be the better option then. I hadn"t thought about it because I have the 68 degree 24mm. Could always sell the 68 degree if get on better with 82 degree

    Hi all, I am thinking about a ES 30mm ep. The exit pupil would be about 6.3, do you think it might be wasted in 50 year old eyes? Thanks
  8. I failed again last night, but it was quite misty out. Just to see how bad it was I had a quick look at M51 and was it barely visible in my 10" dob. Seemed the conditions weren't good enough. Another try tonight!! Just glad to get Panstarrs before the skies cloud over again.
  9. Was supposed to be clear for me last night but a thin layer of cloud meant comets were a no go. Although I did try for an hour!
  10. Panstarrs seemed bigger to me last night, but that could have been the conditions. Still no luck with Atlas despite Heavens above listing it as mag 8.
