    Default new eye piece



    Well i have got my new 32mm plossl and so far the sky is clear so fingers crossed for later. going to try andromeda first then see what else i can find if it stays fine. still getting use to the eq mount but the red dot finder is spot on so that helps a lot.

    Wel the sky stayed clear well into the night so gave the 32mm a good test.

    Your right Starman john, i could see much much more with this eyepiece.

    Found m31 almost straight away, still a snudge but as it got higher through the night it got a little better but not much.
    Had another good look at jupiter with 3 only moons visable tonight. The 32mm with the 2x barlow gave a good clear view, not big but you could see the two dark rings arround the planet.
    Even tried a few snaps of the moon with my digi camera. Did about three and a half hours viewing, well good. thanks all, simon

    Congrat's on your new EP! Glad you like it. I just came in from observing Jupiter and M 42/M 43. The moon was so bright it was creating a problem for me but I can never pass up a clear night for observing.
