Evening all, a couple of months ago i asked if some one could tell me what certain things in the sky might look like through my scope and some posted a link to a website that allowed me to enter my scope and ep, it would then show me a skecth of the obhect with the size and brightness i would see it. i think Talitha? any idea what the site is? many thanks
