Jovian.................if you have a small scope (60-90mm) check out "Turn Left At Orion".


i do , and i will. ive heard a lot about it, mostly from these boards. might be handy with the scope i have.

If you would like an idea of the view you will get, but don't want to order a book, there are sketches of each messier object here www.perezmedia.net/beltofvenus/archives/000416.html
