Gerald - the Newtonians have one big drawback: The eyepiece can end up in really backbreaking positions, depending on if you have an alt-az mount. If you have a GEQ mount you can normally rotate the scope in the mounting rings to get the ep in a good spot for you.
Is your refractor a doublet or a triplet? A 150mm refractor scope could command a fair price, depending on the optics configuration.
I own a 150 refractor. Due to back problems I can no longer comfortably access the eyepiece. I've been thinking of trading it in for a Newtonian. I wonder if anyone's got any experience with the comfort of a Newtonian. Their lining up for a swap but I don't want to end up in the same boat with a lesser scope.
Fantastic close up of comet 67P on ESA's flicker. No news about Philae sadly.
Beautiful Aurora light shows Patricia. I think the one like a rainbow is especially gorgeous. Yellow, green, purple, and blue.
I've never seen any, but would love to.
This one is a beautiful animated screensaver for Windows, found at freesaver.com. I have this on my desktop pc.
Patricia, these are beautiful computer wallpapers. They make me want to dance to their rhythms.
I have some as computer wallpapers.......
Gerald, I like your description of the challenges facing Philae. What an adventure that has been. When I was a kid camping out on the St. Joe River, in northern Idaho, the nights were so clear of dust and light pollution, we thought we could see forever.
They are absolutely fascinating. Camping is where we saw, & heard them too, & then we had a good siting while on the night Greyhound bus to Saskatchewan in 2000.
