I'm still learning and having fun trying, but new first.  I double split the double double.  I "think" it was a good win with a small scope, suburban skies, and bright moon.  I have to admit, something cool about seeing all four. 

 

Location: St. Louis area

Skies: Suburban

Telescope: 72mm Doublet

Eyepiece: 7.7 with 2x barlow

 That's good for an F/6, 72mm doublet. Does your lens contain FPL-53 glass?

Pretty sure that is it.... Yea, I have gotten things with this scope I didn't think possible.  Not bad for $250 used.  One of my best astronomy buys.
