JOC Posted January 19, 2017 Share Posted January 19, 2017 I know my telescope is not huge, huge, but reading around on the web it seems that 8" is sufficient light gathering for some naturally coloured objects to show their true colours. I wondered if anyone had a few ideas of coloured obects I could try for. I've read about Alberio (sp?) one orange and one blue double star, but my goto sends the telescope nearly horizontal and I can't peer over the garden hedge to see it, so I don't suppose I will ever get to see it. Are there any more coloured things up there tbat I might be able to resolve the colours of with my 8" Dob please . Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
