Hi all

Fairly new to this hobby. Now in retirement I decided to treat myself to a scope and settled for the Celestron CPC 800. It arrived last week (thanks FLO, great service) and I have been waiting for a clear sky since. Last night I managed about an hour and a half and fumbling around trying to align the scope I happened upon Jupiter with Callisto, Ganymede, Io and Europa. WOW! what an amazing view! I'm well and truly hooked.

Would you believe I couldn't find Aldebaran in the finderscope or the scope (stiff neck, dodgy knees, etc), but finding advice on this knowledgeable site is great and I will now add a right-angled finderscope to my shopping list.

Can't wait for clear skies (Martin at FLO said that he'd pack a few but they got lost in transit).
