Very faint from the back yard!
It took a little bit to get use to using the collimation eyepiece.
But after you get the hang of it man it makes the whole world of difference to your viewing experience.
I did it! I have been wanting a BTG – 2 Green Laser / Black or GLP for a long time and I ordered it to day.
I saw that is was on sale for $55.00 and I could not pass it up.
Shipping was FAST it went out with in hours of the order.
Our club has 1 GLP and sometimes it forgotten or not at the star party.
So I decided to get one.
A GLP can be used as a scope finder but I just want it as a pointer
This is M-15
Globular Cluster in Pegasus.
It is worth the time to find it. It pretty small and it a tight cluster.
We have been wanting a bigger set of binos.
One of our sporting goods store had a sale on Barska 15×70 binoculars.
And of course as soon as we bought them the astor weather bug hit and RAIN so we have not really had much of a chance to get out and use them.
But the little bit we have used them WOW what a view.
