20x80 bino suggestion

Posted By Justin Fuller

Hi all,
I'm very interested in getting some 20x80 binos for astronomy, and want to stay under a $300 price. I live very close to a ScopeCity location, they offer Celestron, Konus and Barksa binos in my price range; the Barksa 20x80 Cosmos binos in particular are interesting me. Orion also offers very similar bino on their site, and that one is attracting me the most, mainly because they surrender more information on it such as fields of view, coating types, etc; also they look like they have a better build quality. Can anybody tell me if the Barksa or Orion 20x80s are the better buy, or are they the same exact bino offered under different brands? Thanks for reading and any help you can give.

comet in Lyra?

Posted By Justin Fuller

Hi all,
Can anybody help me identify the object in the photo I've attached? I've crudely pointed to it. A quick scan on the Minor Planet Center and a google search of "Lyra Comet" hasn't turned anything up. Thanks for anybody that can help me smile

A Question for Those Who Observe with Smaller Tele

Just tried these clusters at 150X in a 3" reflector. Averting my eyes brought out what appeared to be the twinkle of individual stars, but I could not see them with direct sight. Thanks for pointing out these globulars before they start sinking into the dusk. smile

comet in Lyra?

Posted By Justin Fuller

After a bit of research I've found that comet C/2012 K5 (LINEAR) was in Lyra at the time of the photo, however it should have been about three degrees to the north near Zeta Lyra and should have been about magnitude 17.8. C/2012 K5 LINEAR is possibly undergoing an outburst, if anybody happens to be observing soon I suggest scanning in and near Lyra.
