I ordered a binoviewer on a whim, and it is scheduled to arrive this Friday. Saturday looks like the first clear night in a while, and I plan to give the binos a first try. So, two questions:
1. Which scope should I go with, my 12” sct (f8) or my 5” app refractor (f5)?
2. What targets would be best for a first test? Mars is a bit low, but I’ll give it a try. Should I stay with large stuff, such as M31, double cluster, M42, or go with nebulae or other fainter dso’s? I’d like to try out 4 or 5 good ones.
Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
