Hello Patrick,

Many thanks for the comments. It was one of the best sessions I can remember. The Argo is certainly living up to its reputation. I know that there are two schools of thought on such devices. Many star hoppers say that it is better to find objects manually as it helps you to learn the sky. There is much to be said for this, but that can take some time. I've just passed 60 and my eyesight is not what it used to be: I need all the help I can get, so I'm glad to have some electronic assistance to maximise my observing pleasure. After all, we are outside looking up because we love the hobby, and the Argo is a great help!!

Cheers, Paul.
