    Default Hello from France



    Hi Guys!

    Gretings from France!
    Just got our first scope (wife seems interested too) which is an ETX 125.
    We are noobs in astronomy field, learning a lot.

    We have already observed Jupiter through the stock 26mm eyepiece which was stunning, now waiting on more EP's

    My other hobby is Remote Control heliopters. BTW it has been useful so far because it allowed me to replace the AA power in the telescope with a 3S lipo pack from one of my small helicopters, looks steady!

    Anyway hope we're gonna enjoy ourselves in this new hobby and I probably will be bugging you guys with questions in the future, although most topics have already been covered.

    See you around!

    Benjamin
