I'm a new "astronomer" (I don't know if it aplies to me or not since I just started). I just bought a 4.5 Tasco reflector (Not the greatist scope in the world, I know, but it was cheap and I didn't know if I was gonna stick with it or not) and I would like to know what some of the more "beatiful" stellar objects are. I have looked at the Moon and Saturn so far, and that was the most awesome thing I have ever seen! Also, the scope has a very unstable equatorial mount(wind moves it around greatly), is there a way to make it more stable short of a new stand? Thanks for the help.
