Hi all,

it's been a while since I used my telescope (1 year+) and a lot longer since I posted here but just thought I'd share my evening with you. I noticed the moon was up at around 9pm and decided to have a look. It fills the field of view of my Meade 5000 32mm when 2x barlowed and makes for a nice starting point. Using the 25mm XCel I remembered how I don't like it very much and used my 9mm TMB which gave good-ish resolution even when barlowed.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and must try to get out there more over the summer. I find my C6R ok for DSO's but it struggles really and I wonder what a big aperture reflector would be like. Nice for the moon tonight though.
