Hmm, usually it seems to me the pictures they show to sell telescopes are taken with Hubble or some sort of high altitude ground based observatory in optimal conditions.
It's why I bought a telescope, and since I can't see all those pretty colors promised it's being shelved. And it will stay that way for one hell of a time.
There's just nothing in that damned sky. Shimmering dots and one occasional spot like Jupiter or Saturn (which look like those small alphabet shaped noodles in soup).
