this week I got my first binos ever. Following a CNer's recommendation it the SG 6.5x32 WP ED by Vixen. Of course the weather is dreadful this week and I could not try much. I am wondering what to expect. Under suburban skies, Borle 4 according to map, not measured, will I be able to see:
- the Andromeda galaxy?
- the Triangulum galaxy?
- the running man nebula?
- colors of M42? (I expect to see M42 for sure but will it be colored?)
- the rosette nebula?
- the california nebula? I doubt this one.
Would you recommend to observe with my glasses on or without? From I first test it seems like I come to focus without glasses but I cannot tell how much my eyes astigmatism will affect the image. I read in the book "Discover the Night Sky through Binoculars" by Stephen Tonkin to rest my fingers on the bones of my head to hold it still. That won't work with glasses on. Probably got to try.
