I have been going out recently with my Carton 60mm f16.7 riding

piggy back on my Takahashi 100 dc. It is utterly amazing what the

carton 60 can show you comparing it to a “four incher”! Went through

a good portion of the Messier objects as well as numerous other

open and globular clusters which really put a big smile on my face!

On the Caron 60 I was using a 30mm Orion Ultrascopic and on the

Takahashi 100 a televue Delite 12mm. One of my younger grand

sons told me he wanted the Caron 60 not the Takahashi 100 for

his primary viewing telescope! Needly to say to him bigger was not

better!!

My AT-92 on my CG-4 makes for a very nice compact Solar White light observer.
