Please consider using an alternative browser - especially if you are on Windows XP which only supports the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser - such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox which do have support for these web standards. As well as not supporting modern features and web standards, old versions of browsers - especially Internet Explorer - can expose your computer to security risks. The Browse Happy website has a list of the latest versions of all major browsers, including Internet Explorer (but remember Windows XP only supports up to IE8!)
If updating/changing your browser is not possible, do not panic - all of the LAS website is still available to you and we are working to make the layout compatible with outdated browsers.
Hi Mike, you should be able to see deep sky objects with this telescope, the one drawback is that it is a short focal length refractor which gives a wide field of view so targets will only be small, this is not the best time of year for deep sky as generally it does not get dark enough, I would suggest visiting us at the observatory one Wednesday evening (bring your scope along) and we can help you get the best out of your new purchase.
