Ive got an old 500mm f8 telephoto and a 500mm f8 mirror lens just sat in a corner of the room,always wondered if I could use the mirror one as a very small spotter :)
Would you recomend a good eyepiece to use with it ?

Thanks,

Impact ?

Here's a post from a forum Im a regular on .. "My mate was standing outside his house at mid-day on Friday talking to a visitor. Suddenly, there was a loud 'smack' on the concrete drive about 20 yards away - in his words, it sounded much like a hard-boiled egg being dropped from a great height....

Reading your report reminds US all of how "Active" the conditions on the moon are,
unless your a lunar observer you tend to forget the drama of a simple sunset occuring over the lunar terrain,

Thanks for the post,

Thats an Incredible image,

I remember the first astronomy book I saw at a library,it had a rather blurry picture of the Cone Nebula on the cover,
Yours is so much sharper and better than a pro image a few years ago,

Sounds like ISS for the next decade with no real plans after that,
Comercial space flight sounds like the way forward,it'l all pan out in the coming months,
Although I can't see congress/senate being too happy with Obama,they could still vote obama's idea down,
