    Cris,
    After a couple of frustrating nights we put the telescope to good use tonight. Starting with the moon, then Mars and then Saturn !
    It was the first time I’ve ever seen the rings “for real” and it was amazing!
    Dave was delighted and very surprised by his birthday present so thank you for your advice.
