  1. Would love to meet up at some point as a newbie and can maybe learn a bit from the.... How to say ......... experienced members here and meet new friends
  2. yeah i keep my scope out in the garage as my tech head took over and thought to myself going from warm to cold isnt good thus it being in the garage. thanks for the info of the ep guess iv just gotta have a play around when wev got clear nights
  3. thanks John Yeah Iv posted same questions in the general help and advise forum couple of hours ago but nothing yet
  4. Thanks Knobby Yeah I get What im looking at (ie jupiter) with the 20mm the quickly change to the barlow ect and track it with the micro adjuster? well i can keep it in view lol is there a 1.25 extention vailable cos with the 6mm its only just out of focus and thinking if was a little bit longer i should have it focused. iv only got a cheap webcam from years ago but getting an adapter for it, if needs be ill get a better one but as a newbie just testing the water first. viewing conditions havnt been too bad very clear some nights mostly looking at jupiter and the moon but as only been a week theres loads yet to see less of the essex boy, towies got a lot to answer to lol
  5. Hi I got a celestron 130eq-md for Christmas and so far iv had very good views of the mood and Jupiter. I bought myself the celestron eye peice kit that comes with a 2x Barlow lens, a 6mm, 15mm eye pieces and some filters. Now for the questions. If I use the Barlow and the 6mm it gives me a 3mm but I can't focus enough to get a better view, could I move the balow and eye peice out a bit more to get in focus or could I get a extension tube to focus more? (if any of that makes sense) Would a 3x Barlow be any use? Would like to use a webcam, I have ordered an adapter tube for it onto the telescope. Do I just put it into the focuser or do I need to put it into the barlow? Also want to use my camera but iv tried the film case onto my camera (which fits really well) but when I put it into the Barlow and the focuser I can't see anything even though with eye piece can see what I'm looking at. Iv looked at so many tuts Im lost lol. So any help would be appreciated and in a newbe/plain english way as tech speak I can't understand yet lol Hope you can help as hae asked else where and they didnt exactly answer the questions lol
  6. yeah thanks for all the hellos but no answers to my questions or do i need to put them in a different forum?
