I am considering purchase of a CR-150H (6", f/8, refractor). I plan on using this as a planetary scope in my Mag. 5 backyard but would like to take it up to the mountains as well for some galaxy and nebula hunting.

Can anyone give me an idea of what magnitude this guy will reach out to under good seeing conditions (at 5000')? Thanks in advance.
