hello from Merseyside im Rob. I recently bought my first telescope and im hoping to view the lunar eclipse on the 21st. According to the mooncalc website the moon will be at 25 degrees at the time. The problem im having is trying to calculate if ill be able to see it as ill be watching from my back garden and im in quite a built up area. I was wondering if I set my eq mount up at 25 degrees (just for the test) and point the scope straight and my view wasn't obstructed does this mean im ok? Or is there another way for me to calculate this if what I suggested is wrong?


Thanks in advance to anyone who reads and replies any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Rob. :)
