    Venus - 16 August 2018

    I have seen Venus this morning too across the southeast skies over Nigeria. I think I can proudly say that am among the very few (really really very few) Nigerians that have seen Venus through a telescope. Its a cool sight

    Venus - huge!

    The bright star I saw this morning at 6:30 across the south east skies looked exactly like this in your photo when I viewed it through my F70076 refractor telescope... I think iv seen Venus too.

    I'VE SEEN THE MOON

    Is Venus the bright star that appears as an orb resembling a small half moon in the south-west morning skies when viewed with a telescope few hours before sun rise?
  4. Where is this one located?
  5. I will try my telescope on Orion as you advised. Luckilly the constellation is one I can easily reconize. Thank you again for making this an interesting and guarded experience. Sm most grateful
  6. I intend following the moon till full moon. I really wish I can keep photolog of what I see

    I'VE SEEN THE MOON

    It does
  8. Lol... Am pleased to tell you sir, that I have been able to view the moon with my telescope. I saw details like what I see on TV. I've been studying the skies more since I got my telescope and iv been able to identify some very few constellations like Orion, and some planets like Mars, Venus and I think Uranus. What sir do you think I can look for with my telescope next?
  9. Thanks so much sir, am sorry for replying late, iv been having network issues due to the weather. I have manage to see the moon, it was an intriguing moment... I wish I was able to take a photo but I found it impossible because she was always moving and my telescope unfortunately is really shaky... But none the less... Am glad I saw the surface of the moon.. Its real what we see on TV... Its no science fiction...
  10. With my telescope I peered into the everlasting darkness of the night skies. Slowly I caught the brightness from a corner and I manoeuvre till it was centred this brightness I caught. Focusing, my heart ski pped a bit, two bits and the third... Then I saw, The moon, In her splendour... It was like looking at the face of god. She was grey, She was bold, She was beautiful... I love grey but... Who would have though t That grey can be so beautiful. I was overwhelmed By the enchantment of the moon. And I heard myself saying After a long moment of lunarhypnosis. 'I've seen the moon, and the moon sees me...'

    With my telescope I peered into the everlasting darkness of the night skies. Slowly I caught the brightness from a corner and I manoeuvre till it was centred this brightness I caught. Focusing, my heart skipped a bit, two bits and the third... Then I saw, The moon, In her splendour... It was like looking at the face of god. She was grey, She was bold, She was beautiful...

  12. Yeah.. Its 20mm, I can't even see anything with the 4mm...imagine what 2mm will be like. Yes it does have similar fitment, i lowered it in the picture I sent earlier. I have used the 20mm eyepiece without the 2X Barlow but with a moo filter, that is an image of the view, it only appeared green because of the moon filter.
  13. Smiling... Thank you so much sir, I wil do that tonight... Its just unfortunate the moon is not out yet, I long so much to see the surface of the moon.
  14. Wow... Thank you so very much sir, iv learnt so much from you and on this site. I would say am very luck to be hear. I will continue to practice with my telescope until am used to it and fully understand how it functions and hopfully soon I also would post pictures of celestial bodies I see from my telescope. Thank you again alan64, am so very grateful.
