    Hi. I'm not from Malaysia, but I can find it on a map.
    I believe you will see things a bit farther to the celestial south than I.

    Hi SkyBird, you're right on that. I live in Johor which is 1° North from the equator. So normally I could see both the North and South hemisphere constellations at once, though trying to Polar align using Polaris is impossible since it would be right smack on the horizon.

    At about 830pm - astronomical twilight in my area - I can see Ursa Minor in the North, Centaurus in the South and Virgo at the Zenith. Light pollution is a problem though...

    Virgo is rarely visible from my position due to trees, neighbors, and LP to the south. What would it be like to have it at 90*? Guess I'll need to take a road trip.

    Hi isr25.
    Yeah...just want to start.
    Budget probably less than 5K.
    Any recommendation? Want to use it for viewing and maybe later AP.

    Will probably find a day to visit those shops and see what's available locally.
