  3. Well tonight (13/08/10) I had clear sky's for the first time in day's, so i got my Skywatcher Exp 130 out and was hoping to see somr planets (as normal) but i really wanted to go deeper. So with my best friend (Stellarium) i went hunting for clusters and double star's, but i thought to try my scope and basic skills out and try my best to find 1 galaxy. I found 2 galaxys which was NGC6207 at 23.25hrs then Andromeda at 01.55hrs. So i am well happy with myself now i am thinking upgrading my scope to spme thing bigger. but that will be a different story. Well time for bed now John
