Our Pale Blue Home from 6 Billion Light Years Away
Its so pretty isn't it? To see how little really are inside this world.
It seems so odd to look at that.
Does anyone have a telescope? Have you seen Saturn with rings and a couple moons?
@Davis Goodman I have a NexStar 8SE. Generally for planetary viewing you need high magnification. for Saturn i generally use 25x zoom to target in Saturn and move my way up to 120x using a 2x Barlow lense with a 20mm eyepiece. You can see the rings okay with 25x zoom, Galileo observed "ears" on Saturn with only 7x. I can get Saturn to take up about 1/8th of my field of view at 120x. I can't see Saturn's "moons" since theyre quite tiny :)
6 Billion light years!???? How about 144 million miles.
Does anyone know why there would be "stripes" in space?
