comment Is it difficult to see DSO in your eyepiece?
It depends on a number of things, local light pollution, aperture, eye piece, focal ratio, the size and brightness of the target, ect. There are a number that are visible in 4-6 inch scopes in moderate light pollution, Andromeda and the ring nebula for instance.

comment Alt-Az or Polar?
Are you going with the wedge to start getting into astrophotography? The folks at r/astrophotography on reddit would be able to give you some help with any problems.

comment Alt-Az or Polar?
I'd not really familiar with meade hand set computers but I imagine they have an alignment helper routine built in you can use in either mode. Good luck!

comment Alt-Az or Polar?
Do you mean will you be able to align in alt-az with the wedge installed? If so, probably not.

comment How will the recent appearance of a supernova, the closest in 27 years, help reduce the uncertainties in our measurements of dark energy?
Has it really been directly imaged? I didn't think HST had the angular resolution to resolve stars that far away.

Circular orbits are a special case of elliptical orbits.
