Quote:John59, seeing you own a C11, how does it compare against the 180mMAK on Jupiter?A good test is against a decent 8" Newtonian.

Quote:I have this scope permanantly mounted at my rooftop. It is an amazing scope ! When the seeing is not terrible it delivers excellent views at the planets and the moon . Under dark skies it is very nice for small fields, with very nice contrast and details ! small planetary nebulas or galaxies are very nice and double stars are splitting very nice! I also have a maxbright bino and the views are awessome !! Like you, I am living at the center of a big city, Athens, Greece. But I am using it not just for viewing and photograph planets but I am using it for deep sky narrowband imaging ! I love this scope !http://astrophotographyunderacropolis.blogspot.gr/
