you know I mentioned a while back that I needed a bigger lens to look at the moon?

I think this should do, for now. I hope it's clear tonight.

Amazing, I always wanted a telescope as a kid. My Dad decided to let me put a bet on the grand national horse race (he put the bet on for me) when I was seven years old. My horse won, his came second... therefore I managed to get a small telescope then! I also bought Chesny Hawkes- I am the one and only single (god IM OLD)

aparently there is a mirror on the moon that you can send a lazer beam up to if you know the co-ordinates and it gets reflected back. dont know why one would want to do thet but hey!

yup. the apollo program left it there. it's there so we can accurately measure how far away the moon is, and, more importantly, how fast it's retreating from the earth (a few mm a year, iirc)

You're gonna have fun with that!
I've got one in the attic, gathering dust, must see about a camera adapter for it and wheel it out into the garden.

tried earlier tonight, but conditions weren't the best. no imaging yet, but the f-mount adaptor should be here friday, along with the serial cable to connect it's controller up to a laptop.
