no way...you can see the rings?i haven't gone viewing in a while but i am pretty sure i couldn't.maybe because of how i was possitioned with the street light not to far off....the moon looks awesome.

i need batteries to turn my scope easy.like if i bearly want to move it.for some reason i can only move the scope far lenths.i can't bearly move it.prob because of the axals?

somtimes it takes your eyes a while to ajust, and it is almost impossible to see the rings if the wind is moving the telescope, i dunno if is that windy there but here it is.

bout a week ago when i last use my telescope, but ive been tracking down the path of the moon in the last week too. Full moon was on the 27th! but i fing thats the wosrt time to view it bec there is so much light comming from the sun. While looking at jupiter, i could see five stars aroung it but the fifth is definatly not one of it's moons, too bright with naked eye, do u know what it is?:blpaw: :coolyello
