    First time observing Saturn

    I love following satellites . And yes Saturn is an amazing sight first time . In fact every time i observe it.
  2. Just clearing now so scope out incase ir says good.
  3. Great replies so far. The eyepiece I have had longest is a nagler 3 to 6mm zoom. ( 3 years ) out of 3 and half years into astronomy. But most used is 17mm ethos. Paul
  4. Just home from work. Mainly cloudy.
  5. Thought this would be a fun thread to start. Which eyepiece have you had the longest and will probably be a keeper? Paul
  6. I thought that too. I'm home from work tonight at 11.30.pm Will see what's it's like then. BTW. We still need to get together at some point seeing as we are neighbours. Paul

    Celestron circle t orthos.

    Thank you for a quick reply John. Yes I would never sell my 3-6mm zoom . But was offered a 6mm ortho and just thought I would ask before purchasing.
  9. Yes I will be out tonight if it stays clear in Northampton.
  10. What are your thoughts on the circle t volcano top orthoscopic eyepieces? I'm looking to maybe get a 6mm or 7mm for planetary viewing . Would they possibly give me better detail than my nagler zoom. Paul

    Show us your Orthos

    I upgraded to ethos and naglers 2 years back. And funny enough just purchased a 25mm plossl. As people mention they are lighter. And dont distract you from the target you are observing.

    Messier 33

    Cheers. I'm now after a 15 and 20mm TV. Wide views are great ony ethos .but for travelling I love the plosses.
