  14. hi trevor and welcome to our little part of the world i have a 130 skywatcher with 3 eye pieces also if you can give me some advice as to taking photos wit a canon eos 650 just bought a t ring and adapter to attach it to the eyepiece but can only use the super 10mm lens which is a bit of a bummer as the other night i saw saturn with the wide angle long eye relief combined with the x2 barlow lens and seemed quite small having said that i saw all of its rings and two of its moons whats the milky way like and have you ever seen andromeda galaxy and if you have any clues!!!!! enjoy your time on here its very informative jimmythemoonlight merseyside
  15. many thanx steep the problem has been sorted thanx to your advice it has jogged my very bad memory jimmythemoonlight merseyside
  16. i havn't got used to using the eyepieces yet eg; dont know when to use the barlow lens is it with the 10mm or is it for the wide angled lens for optimum visability also just found out that i can only use the 10mm lens for taking pictures which is a bit restrictive also when it comes to mounts dont know how to set the r/a and the dec ive got a awful lot to learn but im having great fun doing so two nights ago i spotted saturn for the first time it took my breath away also saw two moons spinning around it and the clouds around the rings with a hint of blue cant wait until i can take a picture of it anyway stolenfeather enough about my escapades what can you tell me about yours jimmythemoonlight merseyside
  17. can someone tell me how i take a picture of a object with no means of focus ie taking the lens off my canon650 to attach a t ring and then not being able to attach a normal lens from my telescope i 'm sure i 've done it before but cannot recall how can someone refresh my very very bad memory cheers jimmythemoonlight merseyside:iamwithstupid:
  18. yes but what has his daughter being doing with it
  19. hi isabelle have you also got a skywatcher if so can you tell me how long you have had it and what are its limits. jimmythemoonlight merseyside
  20. still not sure how this whole thing works so bear with me i have recently been out trying to spot all kinds of things sometimes successful sometimes not the best thing so far is the planet jupiter and its four moons i only have a skywatcher 130 telescope with a 5 inch lens at my disposal but i think it does the job for me very shortly im going to start taking pictures with a canon eos650 with colour and black and white film if anyone could give me some tips or show me some pictures of things they have taken of the universe went out this morning at about 3am to see if i could find saturn is this possible with my telescope or am i being to optomistic the sky was full of cloud or fod or both couldnt even see the moon anyway thats all for now youll be glad to hear looking forward to some responses thanx jimmythemoonlight merseyside:blob10::hello2::confused:
  21. hi there hullabaloo i to have got a skywatcher telescope you probably wont get a better scope for startin mines only a 130 but i am more than pleased with it as i got a barlow lens and two extra lenses with it one being a wide angeled lens happy watching jimmythemoonlight merseyside
  22. a question about the moon has anyone ever used a moon filter attached to a canon slr camera if so is it worth investing in one jimmythemoonlight merseyside
