M31 Andromeda Galaxy

Postby Pullock » Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:17 pm

I've had my telescope less than a week and I'm pretty sure I just saw Andromeda, I can't quite believe I managed to see it, even if it is a blur with a red accent, I find it so thrilling to know I can see these things.

I originally went out to look at the ISS which I saw with the naked eye but didn't manage to get in my scope for more than a second before I lost it.

I've just ordered a couple more eyepieces, some filters and a barlow, I'm enjoying it much more than I expected and look forward to many more beautiful nights looking into the night sky.
