I will be taking a trip to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica next week with my newly acquired 80mm short refractor (Nighthawk ala Astromart). Although it seems I will not be able to see below about -72 degrees declination, I have never had the opportunity to see below what Maryland offers.
Does anyone have a recommended sight I should not miss? Will the seeing be ok on the coast, or should I try to get to a higher elevation? Should I stick with wide views or push the magnification? Thanks for all your help. I'll come back with a report (but no photos).
