She's a little bit fuzzy, but I can see a couple of bands running almost vertically through the middle. Nice. A Go To scope sounds like the go. Cheers.

Hello mate. I would think anywhere around 150. The scope I've got is called a Go To and its powered, can go to objects which you choose from a library of thousands of objects and then tracks the objects across the sky. My scope was around 250 but is cheaper now. There are so many scopes out there and it all depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to be able to take pictures and to track the sky then you will need the scope to have drives or a Go To. If you just want to look at objects in the sky then you could get a decent scope with more light gathering power and be cheaper ...

TFF Jupiter and its moons rock! Venus is in a good position to see at the minute with its awesome phases and Saturn is getting higher in the sky and there is a Comet, Lulin I think its called which is lurking around somewhere. Its a great time to be out with the scope, and the snow!Cheers

I have studied the comos for near thirty years and jupiter is my favorite to view, You can actually see the clouds swirl arond on it, The only troube is unless you have a tracking ability telescope otherwise you can only keep it in view for a maximin of two miutes due to the spin of earth then you have to relocate is agian, Im sure you know all to well,Thanks for the coment back to me,TFF

Nice one Lt Ripley! The scope and camera I used are basic and the picture I got doesn't compare to the detail some people get with better equipment but I was really happy to see them 2 cloud belts!Cheers
