Last night I went out with my tasco 114mm reflector and got a great view of Saturm using the 4mm eyepiece. It was moving fast, but I had the planet centered in the scope and all I had to do was move the micro adjuster about every 10 seconds.

I spent about 1/2 hour looking at Saturn and then turned by attention to Jupiter. By the time I caught Jupiter in the scope it was about 90 degrees. I had a hard time keeping it in the scope, but when I did I had a great view.

I went in after an hour or so, but had a great time.

I am aware of the bad rep tasco seems to have, but really I am satisfied with mine.... I may someday invest in a bette balow and better eyepieces, but for now I am happy.....
