  4. If I can see Saturn this way I think I will call that a big success... I look forward to achieving something as clear as this
  5. OK... Thanks so much... I wil do d calculation... Thanks again
  6. Will i be able to see saturns ring with my F70076 telescope?
  7. I would love to see saturn too but I dnt knw how to go about that with my reflector F70076 Newtonian telescope... Can u advice me how? Thank you so much as I anticipate your reply.
  8. So many people with same hubby and same issues... Am beginning to think there is a connection with peering through a telescope and cataracts... ? I am also four eyed too ( as people who use glasses are refared to in Nigeria), astigmatism, bt I can stil use my telescope with out my glasses. Am happy for you guys that had happy ending, I wish you better health all round
  9. Goodevening sir, as it is 9:59 here in Nigeria.

    Please I have some enquiry I want to make sir. Jupiter has been visible for a while now in the morning sky but it appears as a small star. My question now is how do I use my telescope to view Jupiter since it is so far away, because I have been trying to but I haven't succeeded so far.

    Thank you very much.


  10. I guess the reason for the our different observation time is because am in Oyo state, Nigeria. Nigeria is about one hour ahead of England in the time zone hence Venus would be observed in the sky about one hour earlier before people in England would see her, this is why I saw Venus and Jupiter about one hour earlier before you did... Yes, the photo did paint a clear picture of my poem. Maybe I will do as you did and take a picture of Venus and Jupiter tomorrow morning as they pass by. I think one good thing to be in Nigeria with out constant power outage is it gives us a dark background for a clearer observation.
  11. Venus and Jupiter Trailing each other Like a star and a half As I watch the east-west sky. Like sister and brother Holding hands one in the other Trying to find their path Through the ecliptic plane. One is brighter Compared to the other As they sail through The 5:46 morning sky. A beautiful sight to gaze at Yet a contrast To see Venus brighter And Jupiter dimmer Cos my mind flashed the reminder That Venus a smaller Compared to Jupiter That is much more bigger. I seem to have a reason much cooler and brighter To wake up every morning Since I got my Newtonian. Am glad I found also A home of willing teachers A lounge of enthusiasts To lead me in my star trek As Venus lead Jupiter In today's 5:46 morning sky. Thank you SGLers You have been my brightest stars.
  12. Oh... I understand nw. Thank you so much sir
  13. Can my F70076 refractor see Orion like he did? Goodmorning sir
  14. Hi... Goodmorning.. These are beautiful... I wish I can see these too via my telescope. I have an F70076 refractor with a 20mm, 12.5mm, 4mm eyepiece, and 2X Barlow. Can I catch Orion as you have with my F70076 refractor?
  15. Thanks Paul, am glad u like it. I really wish I can take photographs of what I see but iv been unable to. Maybe I need some kind of device.
  16. Thank littleguy80. I still havent viewed mercury nor jupiter as the are closer to the sun at the moment, I haven't perfected my skill with the telescope so am being careful so I won't do damage to myself ?

    Hi.. Welcom to SGL, Folks here are the best I must say... They were patient with me and put me through when I started, today am proud to say I have viewed the moon many times and also Venus... Trust what ever advice you get cos its the possible best.
  18. Like a beacon in the morning sky Venus she shines big and bright... Like a lone entourage Guarding the sun Across the waking firmament, As he gently glow of orange and yellow Rises from his skyline den, I see through the haze Of this Christmas morn At the hour that say half past six, As Venus seems to plot out the path For the sun's journey from the east to the west To our confined eyes Venus she is, Like a big bright star... A diamond in the sky, Twinkling in the dawning of a day Standing apart in the eastern sky, But with the telescope I clearly can see Venus she is Like a small half moon, she's silver, She's grey, She's beautiful... Forever drifting like a promise kept, In her retrograde orbit, A rebel she is Amongst the other celestials a peculiar one, She is truly a goddess In the vastness of space I cannot tell whom I love the most, The moon Or Venus, In the calmness of the morning sky. I love them both They are silver They are grey.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. 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
