    @alrhazer Yes absolutely. But please never point it at the sun. It would cause instant eye damage.

    and i wasnt quite sure if were doing it right with the finderscope thingy,but i got it sorted thanks to this guide. I will now get a good start an not shove the scope in my closet, as i almost thought of doing

    brilliant intro to astronomy Will ! Good on you for showing what can actually be found with a small scope – a lot of people don’t realise they can also enjoy a lot of objects with simple 10 x 50 binoculars.
