    Wink First steps with C-8



    Just joined this Forum to help me in mastering the Celestron C-8. I am a retired UK ex-pat living in rural France where we get some good seeing nights. Hope to progress to Astrophotography later using a Canon Rebel xTi (D400). Looking forward to some useful exchanges.
