An interview

My friend Daniel Mounsey and I chatted about observing and eyepieces recently:

I'd like to see this type of interview done more often, even by Zoom if possible, because there are superb observers in every country, especially Australia.

Very interesting chat. Thanks fo sharing your insights Don!

I’ve been planning on grabbing a Morpheus 12.5 and 9mm and Ultima Edge 30mm soon to complement my ES 68į 40mm, Ultima Edge 18mm and SvBony sv215 3-8mm zoom as I get what you mean by an eyepiece going further.

My X Cell Lx 9, 7 and 5mm haven’t been used since I got that zoom as it sees fainter (and is sharper) than any of them on DSOs and the moon.

Also, you should make a guest appearance on the Actual Astronomy podcast (if you haven’t already), Mike and Shane are great at flying the flag of visual astronomy. And they love eyepieces.

Thanks, Matthieu.
By the way, I'm going to be in Australia for the OzSkyStar Fest starting at the end of September, and for almost a month following as a tourist.
I'm looking forward to seeing things south of -40į again at altitudes higher than 'down in the muck'.
