  1. Hello all! New to astronomy and new to a Celestron Astromaster 114EQ. The daughter and I are avid campers and decided this last summer on a starry night we wanted to see more of the Universe, learn about the constellations, more about the planets, and see a few comets. Today I'm going to spend some of the day learning about the Equatorial Mount and moving the scope. I took it out for an hour last night and was only able to see a few stars (and a plane) using the 20mm eyepiece, but really I didn't know what I was doing. I'm also going to look into a new finderscope as I guess the one that comes with the model is...not very good. I of course will take any suggestions for equipment with this scope, eyepieces, advice about patience, and using the scope all together. Thanks, all!
