Hello,

I have a Pronto telescope and I like know if this refractor can "to look" nebulas like Merope, N.AMERICA,Veil,California....in a dark sky or with a narrowband filter,UHC or OIII?

Thanks,

Paulo

Paulo, If you have a H-Beta filter, I'd suggest you look for the CA nebula with the lowest power the Pronto will go. The best view I've ever had of it was through a University Optics 11X80 finder with a H-Beta.

The Merope should be visible on low power with dark skies. The Veil can be seen well with low power and a UHC or OIII.
