Oh yes, the "Steves" may like to know that we will be testing out the following:

1. Big Easy (Clement) vs Denk II
2. 25mm Erfle pair (Clement) vs 25mm TV Plossl pair
3. 20mm WO Wide Angle pair (Ian) vs Pentax XW (Ian) pair
4. 19mm Antares W70 Wide Angle pair (Chee Chien) vs 18mm UO Ortho (Weixing) pair

Thanks to those people (in brackets) for the loan of their equipment for this testing.

Jiahao, my 35mm ultrascopic is currently loaned out last night pending sale, so it will not be available. You can try to borrow from other Singastro members.

Jiahao, you may like to note that using a dewshield alone is not enough for the corrector plates of SCTs and MCTs at Mersing, as the dew can be rather heavy and quite fast. You need at least a dew heater for your scope to last the whole night.

From your detailed observation list, I had thought that you intended to search out those faint fuzzies for the whole night! :)

That list is more of a review of what I have seen through my 3" refractor. It's been more than a year that I haven't done any DSO observations so have forgotten the positions of most objects... Just the time to pull out the memories out of my head :mrgreen:
