Quote:A more important limitation is the stability of the atmosphere where you live. I live under a very unstable bit of sky and at times can only use X 75 on my 10" newt. that can magnify up to X 500 before the image goes so wobbly I get sea sick! Ontario should be stable, so it might be OK with a bigger scope.
Quote:In my area, the more aperture you use, the more wavy the image seems to be due to atmospheric issues. My 120mm ED refractor gives a very nice view. In general, the max. magnification that you should plan on being able to use is 2 times the aperture (in mm). Beyond that magnification, the image gets too dim for my tastes.
