  8. There really is no known cure for aperture fever, a bigger scope only holds it off for a couple months Welcome to SGL

    Hi to Everyone !

    Hi John, welcome to SGL
  10. I managed to get allot of detail on Mars through the 10" scope I had at the time, I live on the outskirts of Manchester in Bolton. In my (admittedly short experience) planets shouldn't be to badly effected if at all. Granted the skies in Bolton aren't the worst but it was still very difficult to see the lower magnitude "faint fuzzies", some of the galaxies I went for were within the ability of the scope but were rendered invisible by the sky glow. It's probably best to stick with the messier objects if you want to explore the deep sky, and as mentioned above star clusters tend not to be as badly effected by light pollution as nebula and galaxies. :)
