Thanks for your kind comments.
I have always wanted to try my hand at this, cost has prevented any serious attempts till now. The little Skywatcher 'scope is a gem and at 170 a bargain.
I will post more of my efforts... clear skies allowing Smile

Wow, this is great, especially so since it was not sent back by the Hubble Telescope that sits in space
