I like hearing form all of you, who are more experienced than me, on what equipment works well for different purposes. Therefore, I thought I'd start a thread focused on your best night out. What telescopes pair well together, in terms of different designs, apertures, focal lengths, etc., for making a great night of stargazing?
To get this started, I'll share my best night out, which, as you can see in the attached image, included my C11EdgeHD on Orion Atlas GEM, Orion XT10-g and a pair of Nikon 10X50 binos. Note also the iPad with SkySafari Pro, an observing chair for the SCT and a ladder for my kids to reach the eyepiece on the reflector, oh and a hot cup of joe. This combination often provides equally pleasing, albeit different views, of the celestial wonders.
