    That is outrageous. I can see Jupiter with my naked eye.

    Do you have any idea how much I've missed you?

    The enormity of what is depicted in these photos takes my breath away.

    We had an incredible full moon last night and I do believe we saw Venus.

    The boy was quite interested so now talk it turning to having him receive a telescope for Christmas...

    Saw Venus last night as DD and I were putting up outside Christmas lights. Grabbed that cheap Galileoscope refractor and got a great view of it near eastern elongation!

    Venus is putting on a nice show at the moment. Never seen clouds on her though, need a purple filter apparently - love seeing the different phases like the moon - really makes it seem 'real' ( daft thing to say )

    Photographically nebulas are my favourite thing to image bar none, optically Planets have always given me a thrill beyond anything else. Saturn still makes me squeal with delight and seeing Mars' polar cap[s for the first time was a special moment as well

    We'd not be able to afford anything too elaborate, Skywatcher. Best we can hope for now is a decent "entry level" one. Not even sure we'll be getting one, but I do think he'd like it...he's quite interested in anything to do with space, earth, planets, that sort of astronomical stuff.
