I got a 3.6mm yesterday. Though I could seee Mars much larger, there was still no detail. Cool to look at though.

The Moon was very nice. The detail on the craters and a "mountain range" were striking. Today I received the Moon Filter, so I'll see how that is tonight.

I was thinking about this peice here:

I don't know if I can use it with the 3.6mm (doubling the magnification), but if I can, then I'll be getting around 520x instead of the 260x we are capible of going up to now. Apparently 400x is a good magnification for looking at Mars (http://www.celestron.com/support/faq_114gt.htm#114A2) it looked bigger and whiter in my opinion. I wonder if there's a Mars filter? :)
