Some ideas?

Recommended Posts

Evening all...

I would be grateful if anyone can suggest any interesting things to look at with a 5" Newtonian in the vicinity of Arcturus/Saturn.

I've got Turn Left at Orion, but am still struggling to find stuff. However, I do have a great view of the above stated region from my back garden at the moment.

I'm really struggling to star-hop but hope to get there. I was actually chuffed when I saw the double star in the plough through my eyepiece, even though you can see it with the naked eye. It meant I managed to find something other than Saturn. LOL

Any ideas folks?

Cheers for that.

I have a 25mm a 6mm and a 2x barlow. Like I point, I'm a proper newbie. Which of do you think the 6 or the 25 with the barlow would be best?

Thanking you muchly in my ignorance.
