For me, it's most often in a spot behind my apartment. The skies are poor, but dark skies are over an hour away. On clear moonless weekends, I try to get out to one of three spots: a spot near the Altamont pass, which is mediocre at best, with the Milky Way faintly visible on a good night, or somewh...

Dream Theater is my favorite live band from a technical standpoint. As far as raw energy, probably The Ramones back in the day. 8)

Welcome to the forum, Andy! I don't know what it was like in Sacramento last night, but it was really windy here. That can hurt the seeing quite a bit. I didn't go out viewing for that reason. Sounds like you had a productive time though! :)

Televue doesn't have sales very often, unfortunately...

Some of Televue's plossls are under $100. But, yeah, the Panoptics and Naglers cost a bit more. But with an SCT, you can use almost any decent eyepiece and get good results. With a scope that has a fast f/ratio, the eyepiece choices get tougher... :)

That's a nice scope, Andy. I almost bought one at one point a few years ago. :)

My vote goes to the following:

30mm Agena SWA, UWA's
TMB Planetary Series
Baader Hyperion's
Televue Plossls
Orion Highlight plossls


...any other ideas? :)

Whoa, dude- watch your french! :lol: I edited the f-bomb out of your post. I guess I need to reconfigure the word bleeping system! :lol:

But yeah, you're right- it is scary! It's hard to believe that some still insist that global warming doesn't even exist, or it's caused by volcanoes. :roll:

Hi Danny and Fred,

Welcome to the forum! Danny, you can easily see craters on the moon with most binoculars. What kind and size are they? :)

It's hard to find time, but I try to do it 3 times a week, though I'm active every day. How often do you exercise, and what type of activity is it- treadmill, jogging, walking, hiking, etc.?

For widely available and inexpensive products, I like Trader Joe's offerings. The Soy Buffalo nuggets are awesome! So are the Morningstar Riblets. What do you like?

For bang for the buck, I'd probably pick flocking, and installing a curved spider to get rid of those nasty diffraction spikes around bright objects.

What type of mods have you found useful and cost effective?

What are your favorite eyepieces for planetary viewing? For deep sky viewing? I like widefield eyepieces for both, since my main scope doesn't have tracking. Naglers are probably my first choice- how about you?
