LUNAR ECLIPSE


It’s been a while since the last time I took out my telescope. I even forgot how to use it (align it with the sky motion and all that stuff)! You don’t really need a telescope to watch a lunar eclipse but you can have fun watching Luna’s craters and maria, planets, nebulae, clusters…etc. Unforunately my Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope only has one 26mm Plossl lens and a x2 Barlow lens, so I couldn’t see Saturn--right there beside the eclipsing moon--as I wanted.
