However, there is an option in of the first few menus which allows you to download more stars from their online database. This'll take you down another few magnitudes.


XEphem using the online interface to the Guide Star Catalogue will get you down to about 19th.

Close. Someone took this pic when I was trying to ajdust the scope&webcam during the mercury transit in Sandymount. Couldn't see the laptop easily so had to hide under a coat.

Is it me, or does it look to be a similar size to Venus when it Transited across back in June? It must be an optical illusion, but I would have thought Mercury would be even smaller. Good clear pictures there Al!
