Two decades probably! The biggest problem with the 4.7" is that really seeings things with it requires very dark skies.
And with the typical 30-50 clear nights a year... it is gonna take a long time! Few trips to Australia or somewhere else will surely ease up the load
Quote:I see from Iiro Sarainen's website that he has an expedition to Western Australia lined up. You going to be on that trip too Jake?

Astronomy is a really good excuse to travel around the world Unfortunately I will make my journey to Geraldton Western Australia without Jaakko, but thankfully I have two other deepsky-fellows with me. It's gonna be interesting six weeks.
