Kent, I think that you may be wandering into the 28-32" range. :shocked:

Sergio, wow, great photo, looks like a very dark observing site.

 

Scott, it is an amazing site when the conditions are right. I have had many excellent session here over the past few years. It is right on the water, if you look in between the tripod's legs you will see the light of a boat farr off in the distance. Sometimes we even get a gentle rolling of the waves, love this place.

:lol: That is what I am afraid of.  I think I will just have to find some nice Dobs to look through and see what I am missing.  Or should I get a Tec 250?  Then I wouldn't need the 32" Dob.  Kidding of course.

What about the FS-60CB as a finderscope on the 152 ;) ?

 

LOL, maybe in the future, not a bad idea.

 

I don't know about a FS60CB finder but  I suggest you try a Telvue Starbeam red dot finder on that DM6. When I got one for my DM6, it was the best astro item i ever bought ( except for my Leica ASPH), I think the Starbeam is much easier to use than any other red dot.

Tom I was thinking about getting a Starbeam but since I only use it for my initial alignment, I think that it would be overkill.
