Just for fun. I have my little Willaim Optics zenithstar 66sd, mounted to my Losmandy G11.
It’s a very nice sunny day here in East Cheshire. I slewed the G11 to the Sun (filter on telescope) did an alignment. And now I am looking at Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and the Moon. All through a 13mm Baader Hyperinan eyepiece at x20
Venus looks, round, whilst Mercury is a tiny cresent. Jupiter is a large, ghostly orb. And the Moon is at crescent phase.
With a little filtering and a comparatively small aperture, its suprisingly easy. I recall an afternoon session at the Cody Society using their 150mm F15 to spot stars of 4th magnitude (hard) and 3rd magnitude (pretty easy) when looking at the darker parts of a blue sky. The scope wasnt GOTO, but did allow very good manual pointing accuracy.
