Home Forums RAC Main Forum General Discussion Observing tonight? Re: Observing tonight?


      A BIG thank you to Jeff and his wife for giving me a personal mini-star-tour.  It was my first-ever view of Jupiter.  Very cool.  I didn't know those "stars" were moons till Jeff pointed them out.  What was really nice was having Jeff confirm the identity of the faint fuzzys I was seeing. "OH!  So THAT's a nebula!"  Thanks again, Jeff.
      My first scope was a 60mm Celestron Nexstar (for sale!) and was pretty useless.  My new scope, a Celestron CPC-800, is awesome and this was the very first night with a clear dark sky.
      I should have taken the opportunity to look through Jeff's 12" Dob, but was too into my new scope and all its fancy doodads and new eyepieces.  Maybe next time Jeff?
