new to forum, but iv'e been looking up thru a 5" celestron powerseeker (best $200 iv'e ever spent) for a few years now. recently purchased a skywatcher 10" dob.( just in time for full moon, then cloud,then....clear, dark skies.wow!) i thought the 5" was a remarkable window to the universe, till i looked thru the 10".its like someone cleaned the window, and made it bigger! anyhow, a quick hello. i'm off to fondle my scope! (wife understands- i hope!) dark skies to all.

it's a wonderful hobby everytime you go into the eyepiece there's something that surprises you!!!!!!!!don't worry about the wife they get use to coming second to the scope.......(:shrug:)..if i could put an extension onto my pod i'd live in it.......
any questions just ask away there's plenty of knowledge on this forum...

You should fondle, well hug anyway your scope regularly, love it and it repays you with wonderful views!
A 10" is a great size, portable, easy to handle but big enough to hunt down '000s of DSOs.
