Quote:Likewise Ed, thank you I hope it has been a productive weekend for you. Seeing your daughter help you made me very happy as a father. She is great! I will install the fans tonight although I will not hear them purr until Saturday. (Maybe they don't even purr ) .Sedat.
Quote:AllI am lucky to have an Edge 8" and a TEC 140 set up side by side.What scope would the forum feel would give the better more pleasing view with premium eye pieces from a mag5 suburban backyard in poor seeing (3-4 Pickering) whilst observing Saturn at similar magnification of around x140?Interested in people's comments
Quote:I can never go to that kind of magnification My seeing is always 3-4 Pickering

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
