Quote:You might try a #80A blue filter on Jupiter--it enhances the contrast of the dark bands with the planet.The green filter works on the Moon, but you would find superior contrast with a #15 yellow.I believe there is a RA motor available for the CG-4. If you don't have one, save up for it because it's great to have tracking when you have a nice EQ mount.
Quote:For me, magnifications below 30x are very important, particularly if the skies are dark and clear. This what a scope like this one is made for, give it's full rein and let it really do it's stuff.Jon
