  1. I was at a star party and the instructor used a green laser. Pretty awesome. I want one. What power or what do I look for so I get the right one. I live in canada Also he used a cAmera with delayed exposure we could see more nebulas and such with the camera than with the human eyeball. Any ideas on a basic setup do I can do this too? Do I need A special camera aNd is it Attached to its own telescope? What power of telescope do I need thanks to u all
  2. I've downloaded the electron sky portal app. How do I direct connect it to my celestron 6se? I see that I can buy the wireless adapter. But how do I connect using the existing cord? Tgabks
  3. Well it does get to -35 here...but if I'm out doing astronomy then I deserve to cook my telescope....thankls for the info
  4. I have the celestron 6se..love it First off, can I use the scope in winter? I am worried about the electronics in it... If I can what are the precautions? like what is the lowest temperature, is there a warming cover I should use? etc etc Any experience is helpful...thanks
  5. I have a celestron 6se, got some dew on the optics last night and noticed some small dust particles...lookin for tips on cleaning or what products to buy for cleaning it....thanks
  6. Thanks for the information...Meteors were impressive last night, along with Jupiter, moon and Venus
  7. Got my telescope out for an extended time and the main optic fogged over...what is the best product to reduce this? I never realized how cold even the eyepiece gets on a warm summer night Thanks!
  8. Ive followed all the tips...level, picked altair adn polaris and mizar...and tried all the alignment types...even tried to change some settings...either I get alignment failed or with one star it alignes...but is way off...I must have something incorrect...but in checking everything I dont see what I can be doing wrong...any help is appreciated!
  9. Thanks for the help...you just saved me cash and time - I'll just stick with what I got... Able to see Saturn last week...Saturn always looks like someone cut it out of paper and stuck it on the lense
  10. With the named meteor showers they say you should see 20 to 30 per hour...so when I see 2 meteors, I'm thinkin what is goin on?
  11. I have been outside trying to see meteor showers for a couple of years... I get out there at the right time...like 3am, and wait and wait and wait....I maybe see 1 meteor or 2 I am out of the city and the last one was without a full moon, so I should have seen more... Am I doing something wrong or is that just the way it goes? Thanks!
  12. I have the Celestron 6se and bought the Baader Clickzoom 8mm-24mm...love it The question I had is the 6SE has a highest useful magnification of 354x, which is a 4mm eyepiece I am wondering if it is worth it to get the Baader Barlow 2.25x to get to the highest magnification, or if things like Saturn and Jupiter are just about as good as it gets with the 8mm lense I already have. I know I'd see the planets closer up, but seeing them at this mag, not sure if there is more to see with a higher power. Thansk!
  13. will take the advice... still for some strange reason, you'd think it wouldnt be that big of a deal... wont try it...nuff said!
  14. Just got some solar glasses...for upcoming solar eclipse...wondering...what harm would it be to be wearing the glasses and look at the sun with binoculars? It says not to on the instructions...but really could it damage my eyes? Thanksd!
  15. I think the cost of the eyepiece is excellent if it works as advertised...I'll give it a shot!
