    You really are a friendly group here.
    Finally I bought a celestron VX 8” EDGE HD, I’ll be able to use it in the weeend probably, so to calm anxiety I’ll continue my reading to learn. 😜
    I bought the book “Night Watch, a practical guide to viewing the universe”, very good so far!
    I’ll continue with the basic topics here too.

    Thanks!

    Beside the Advanced VX EDGE HD 8", I found a cheap Celestron Powerseeker 127EQ, I know it is not the best telescope... but it was cheap. I also read that it can be improved a little bit, and I also think that it's good to have more then one telescope, besides binoculars, so I can do different things, compare and learn.
    Today I went for short session, mostly to apply what I had learned reading these days. I just used the PowerSeeker today.
    I can't upload pictures yet, but I took a few ones of the Moon with mi IPhone SE.
    I was able to see Saturn and three of its Moons too, couldn't align my telescope, it was cloudy to the south... and then it got all cloudy, so didn't have much time to observe.

    I really liked my first night out!
