Thank you Malcom.
And thank you for your encouraging words for Centaurus A.
It is much further out from Omega Centauri than I'd imagined. It wasn't until I got it with binos that I realised how far (even though it's only 4 degrees - working with an ep which gives true fov at only 1 deg in a 22mm wide view can still get tricky for a beginner.
I just wonder how much power (on an average night of seeing) I should use on this object? I only went as low as 10mm (120x) in my obs report.
