Hi all

I came across this website recently: 
telescopius.com

It's a useful site as you can select an object, input your equipment and it shows how the object will appear either in the eyepiece or camera sensor.  It also gives sunrise and sunset times and times of greatest elevation.  There is also local weather and a 7 day forecast.

A great site, I've used it for a while.
You can also build lists of targets and It will send you an email when those targets are best observed.

Great recommendation Paul, thanks! 

I played around with it there. Has anyone figured how to flip the eyepiece view so it shows what the object would like through a Reflector telescope? I couldn't see that option. 

Clear skies, 
Darren.

There doesn't seem to be one Darren.

Send them a suggestion, they might act on it.

Cheers Michael, I sent them a message. It might be a week before I hear something back. Once I do I'll let you know. 

Clear skies, 

Darren.
