10-inch Skywatcher and the Moon

On Tuesday the 30th of March I observed together with a fellow observer who just lives down the road. He owns several telescopes but tonight we tested the Skywatcher 10-inch newton on an equatorial mount. We compared views of the moon, planets and some deepsky objects, using different eyepieces.
