Hello all,as a totak noobie and not just green behind thr ears but all over ?. Ive had my first scope for 7 days now a 2nd hand skywatcher 200p dob, i only have the 2 eye pieces that came with it. I decided to go out in the communal garden again tonight asbthe sky looked good,i got out at 8.30 to give the scope time to cool down and get muself comfy. It was a lovely fairly clear night.And for the first time i managed to get Saturn in my finder scope after finally sorting out its alignment on friday, i started off with tue 25mm eyepiece saturn was tiny but i could cleary make out the rings i was gob smacked so happy and excited i quickly fumbled for the 10mm eye piece and slipped that in a slight adjustment of the scope and saturn was slightly larger and the rings alot more visible wow wow wow i am still on cloud nine it was amazing,i looked at it and followed it for what felt like half an hour.my wife bought me a cup of tea and she had a look to and a couple of my neighbours were very impressed. I then waited for mars to move round and quickly focused on it and i started with the 25mm and then moved on to the 10mm. Before tonight i wasnt very impressed with the 10mm but it did a good job tonight. Im still buzzing and im off to bed now. Just thought i would share with all you wonderful people. Many thanks and best wishes From me Dave ?
