  2. Hi Andy, your first sighting of Saturn is unforgettable isn't it? Mine was through a little 70mm refractor.
  3. Great set of photo's, lots of detail.

    Hi there

    Welcome from me too.
  10. Hi Mj, Scarlet and Manok 101, thanks for your replies. Everyone has been very helpful. My optician told me I have a slight astigmatism but it hasn't stopped me focusing. I read somewhere (I wish I could remember where, could have been here on the SGL) that if one has an astigmatism then you will need much better ep's, like Televues, if you use a higher power than 12mm. This wasn't the case the other night and in any case I can't afford Televues and my 9 and 10mm plossl's seem to work ok. Perhaps my astigmatism isn't severe enough. Clear skies to you all.
  11. Hi Dave and Shibby, thanks for your help. I'll certainly give your suggestions a go. I have seen colour in Betelguese - though it was more a sandy yellow than red. Clear skies!
  12. Welcome to the lounge. Let us all know which scope you get.
