Hi smile.gif

 

I tried observing the moon with my vintage refractor: Carton Mini-6 and a Zeiss O-10 eyepiece.
Observation at large field is nice, at X36 and 1.2 ° field, the moon is visible with the closest stars in its environment.
This scope is also very nice for observing comets.
Very high quality Japanese optics and mechanics.
