Do you have a telescope that you use to stare at the heavens? Did you buid it or buy it? Have you ever visited a proffesional telescope site? If you have and have pics, post and discuss them here!

Very nice scope there! Now that you've had a hance to use it, what kind of range does it have? And does it have a way to attach a camera to it? Smile

I can't attach my camera to it, but I'm trying to get some good pics of some stuff I've found. I saw Jupiter and the Gallilean moons so far. Very Happy

That's a nice telescope ABL. Can you see craters on the moon with it?

Yeah you can, fairly well considering. But out much further then that and you start to get into trouble I'm afraid. Neutral
