  10. Hello and welcome John, seems you have the ground running there with all that gear, nice one. Plenty of people will be along to offer their advice, enjoy your set-up.

    Other more seasoned observers will be along shortly im sure but i have not seen it in my 10" dob as of yet, only been out though twice in the last week and with the moon out and conditions not great i'm not surprised i didn't see it. I think you will need pretty dark and steady skies to view it.
