Hi Lenny,

Nice to know I'm not the only person out there enjoying a Tasco my is 60mm f11 refractor. Mars is out the question for any detail just looks like a bright star to me. I use a 25mm and 9mm, not too often with the 9mm. I can see the rings of Saturn inside and outside edge, but where they cross the planet they kinda disappear. I have observed many of the easier objects, usually those marked binoculars on the SkyMaps.

Keep us posted on what you are doing with your Tasco, I like you will probably wait awhile before moving up, you are already twice my apeture.

Thom
