Re: Newish starter



Just got back from formby point car park, was excellent. Very good views of Jupiter, venus and mars and some excellent views of the moon.

I think the moon in its current state lessens what you can see in the sky though so i think i will need to go back in a couple of weeks when the moon isnt as bright.

Out of interest, in decent conditions what can i expect to be able to see through the 4″, im able to make out the planets fairly well, venus seems tricky because of the brightness of it but can make out one clear band of jupiter and see 4 moons, with saturn i could clearly see the rings and a gap between them and the planet.

Would really love to be able to see Andromeda and the orion nebulae
