(A Journalistic Observation Log) "Looking is not observing. So many look but few observe." Rchard Baum
This is the journey of the TV-102 Light Cup into our wonderful solar system. The really convenient thing about "shallow sky" observation is that no dark adaptation is needed and observation can be performed from your own light polluted backyard! And the really facilitating thing about the 4-inch telescope (like the TV-102) is that it's so quick to deploy on a whim, so quick to cool down and yet still have enough aperture and resolution to tease out some stunning shallow sky details. We invite you to taste the smoking aromaof the Light Cup on:
Well, it's done; the Country Light Cup has now turned into a city slicker Light Cup! In a way, this is our first light in the city (a suburb of San Diego). I approached this observation with great anxiety and trepidation.
I seemed to recall not to longer ago when I first started observing Saturn and could sure enough see the ring. However, I couldn't even tell the difference what they're or how the Crepe Ring look like through a small telescope
My TV-102 Light Cup has put together a collection of tips, guides, etc. to help new observers with Jupiter and Saturn. I seemed to recall not too long ago when I first started observing Jupiter and could sure enough see both bands easily.
