    Default Good targets at Southern Hemisphere



    Hello,

    I want to know some good targets for latitude 20 S. Some objects viewed with a binpculars, naked eye and maybe AP with a 200 2.8 lens on a T4i. Viewong conditions perfect. I have already tried M42 with a fixed tripod. Any pter suggestions. Good objects? I have no scope yet, but I will probably get s C6 on advanced/vx mount. Objects that can be viewed now and in the next months.

    Thanks everyone

    Thanks a lot.

    New Zeland is almost at the same latitude I'm (South America), so, very useful. Just a question, do you use your CGE1100 for Astrophotography?

    Yes, when time allows. Time is a harsh mistress, though. Some of my AP is on my profile page.
