    That site looks good. I'll bookmark it thanks. I've just been looking at Jupiter with my Maksutov telescope.

    Using the Maksutov, have you seen this? xD

      That looks like a Meade. I have Orion (90mm) and Sky-Watcher (102mm) Mak's and a 235mm Celestron SCT which is a bit like a Mak.

          I also have a 13cm Newtonian on an equatorial mount. During the Mars opposition last year I got some good views of Martian surface details at around 250-300x magnification. At one stage I could see the northern polar cap. The 'face' on Mars is in an area called Cydonia near the Acidalia Planitia. There were times when Acidalia Planitia was clearly visible as last year was a particularly close opposition, 2018 (oppositions are every other year) is supposed to be even closer. You can still see Mars not far from Venus in early evening in the northern hemisphere with the naked eye.

          I've seen some planets with Naked eyes, true. There is also one colorful tinkling.

          One thing I have to search, remembered yesterday once seen it again, it's a very brighten star near the Moon.

            The 'star' near the Moon is almost certainly Venus. You should see it as a crescent phase with binoculars.

              Venus is a crescent phase at the moment and a few degrees to the west of the Moon. Both are in Pisces. Venus is about 16% illuminated and only 0.35 astronomical units away from the Earth. An astronomical unit is the mean distance of the Earth from the Sun (around 149 million kilometres) so Venus is fairly close, which is why it's so bright at the moment. As Venus sets tonight and it gets darker you should see Mars to the east of Venus a few degrees directly above the Moon. It's much fainter than Venus but noticeably red. It is also phased but a larger portion is visible. A good pair of binoculars even at 8x or 10x magnification should show the crescent phase of Venus.

              Thanks for the class.
              Never thought it was a planet because the brightness and color, just white.

              When I commented about it was in the upper right, around a span, yesterday it was just in the right side. I suppose it was early.
              I have a binoculars (just checked, it has 8x40), I'll check with them.

              I used to use StarTracker to watch a star map through the camera.

                The planets wander about in the sky due to their orbits and our position in relation to them. In fact, the word 'planet' is derived from the Greek for 'wandering'. It's a bit like runners running around a track. If one of them passes another the other runner appears to be going backward as seen by the passing runner. The planets move in the plane of the ecliptic at different speeds so can vary in position from day to day. Venus is a light green colour at about 150x and I can often see slight colour variations in the surface detail of the clouds. Venus is bright because you are looking at the very reflective clouds that obscure its surface.

                I've seen the Planets with the binoculars :up: but I have to invent something for binoculars do not move, at this distance are so small that even minimal vibration makes it almost impossible to observe.

                Spotting scope? Telescope might be cheaper - small one anyway. Typical binoculars don't include a threaded hole to use with a camera tripod, whereas spotting scopes do.

                I have a cam tripod, so I'll try to invent something :)
                On the other hand, a telescope would be something to keep in mind, but although I like it, I do not spend much time looking at the stars at this moment. :rolleyes:

                  Hubble may take 5 to seven days to deliver though. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/clearance/hubble-cassegrain-reflector-telescope.html

                  The Hubble seems a good opportunity.
