Quote:Am also thinking of getting the SE6. Since my 6" reflector is only a f/5. feel that the SE would be better for the planets.
Quote:Hi Phil,Pleased you enjoyed your run out with the 6se. Guess you did'nt have a chance to catch Mercury which would be lower in the sky (by Nu Scorpii). That little B....r has eluded me so far. I have always found solar align to be accurate enough to allow me to carry on observing for the rest of the night, without have to realign. This after using it to observe say, the Moon, in the early evening, before proper darkness has set in.Thanks for the report.Regards. Peter.
