I can see where bonocs can have certain advantage. It has been overcast the last few nights. Not to bad that you couldn't get a look at an ogject, but it just doesn't seem worth it to take out and set up the scope. Not to mention the fact that since I have reflector I have to be very careful of rain. If I had a good pair of bonocs I could bring them out much easier.

I will probibly consider a good pair later on. For now I am still pondering what plossl eps to buy. I believe they will significantly help my scope. I have investigated several companies such as Orion and Meade, but I have also read reviews on more generic plossls such as GTO. I am also considering a better barlow.

After I settle that issue I will look into a set of bonocs.

Here's hoping for clear skys and warmer weather for this weekend. Talk to you later.....
