The Sky At Night
Last night uitlander offered me an impromptu observing session with her telescope. It's a 6-inch Newtonian, same as mine, but with the superior equatorial mount and a motor to boot.

We had some pretty decent views of Saturn, and of course the Moon, but it began to cloud over as things were getting interesting. I can't really comment on the relative quality of the optics - nothing obviously better or worse struck me, but it's a few years since I actually used mine - but certainly she has some higher-power lenses, so on a clear night the views should be impressive indeed.
