"The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown. Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one is to lose sight of the three."
A man is a small thing, and the night is very large and full of wonders.

Quote:Alright, This evening is will be the first serious attempt to scope Mercury in my 20 years of astronomy. Have been without a scope for the last 10 years but I am back with one again. A 4" refractor and a 8" newt. Looking at clear skies for mich it should hopefully be visible. It is also a bonus that tonight it should be at max elongation. Mercury is the last planet that I have not observed and have really never made a valid attempt at it visually or through a scope. It is now a priority for me and on my bucket list.
