jayem123 Posted June 27, 2017 Share Posted June 27, 2017 Hi, I want to start using my telescope to help me when I go moonlighting - I tend to go when the new moon is born, so its at the stage where it is a tiny slither, and difficult to see. Also the window of opportunity is very small - it tends to set 10 or so minutes after sunset. I have the position and altitude information for moon to hand (from https://www.timeanddate.com/moon/uk/london), what and how can I use my SkyWatcher 130P EQ telescope to make moonlighting more smoother. Currently I take my smaller Celestron 70 travelscope with me (as its more portable) and just scan the sky in the rough area where I expect the moon to be. But as the it sets so quickly and moves quite quickly, i’d love to have a better way of doing this. As always, any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
