Still practising

I'm still working out what i can find. As the telescope arrived when we were just having a new moon, i couldn't even see that until today - Am looking forward to the weekend when i can have a proper go. As for what i have received - it is exactly what i was expecting and was undamaged - so far I am very happy.

Celestron Astromaster 130EQ Telescope

This telescope and tripod were straight forward to put together with the instructions and was easy to work. My first night using it showed a great night sky and so much detail on the moon. The online service ordering it was easy and was at my place in 4 working days (Auckland to Christchurch). Am definitely going to order from them again.
