I own a Celestron 4.5" reflecting telescope which i use to do some general observing. My main interest is planetary observing- Jupiter and Saturn being my favourite objects to view. The Orion Nebula is also excellent through a telescope, and 47 Tucana(globular star cluster) is too. One object which i have never viewed is the Andromeda Galaxy- i'm located too far south too see it. I understand it's visible to the naked eye? Is it very bright? I'm looking to upgrade to either a 6" or preferably an 8" scope in the near future. So does anyone else own a telescope and observe?
