  2. Hi everyone, I recently got my first telescope for Christmas 2012 it's a Skymax 127 SynScan AZ GOTO Telescope (http://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/skymax-127-synscan-az-goto-telescope_d3193.html) that's the link, I've got into astrophotography aswell I have the t ring for the camera it's just learning the correct exposure times and ISO settings I have had good success with the moon. The main problem is I can't for the life of me seem to get the tracking to work, the past few times I've used my scope I've heard small slewing changes coming from it I'm sure that was the tracking, without the tra

  8. Hi, thanks for that replay, I think I'm trying to run before I can walk, might be better for me to get good at the moon and planets before moving onto the nebula, I'm definitely looking for a webcam just need my laptop repairing first. I thought that I may need a new mount after emailing the closes astronomy club to me, they said something about an EQ mount. So I will practice on the planets I think Jupiter is brilliant over where I am at the moment ill still try to work out the tracking on my Skymax 127 SynScan AZ GOTO Telescope just to help out as Jupiter doesn't stay in my eyepiece for very
  9. I'm afraid not, I'm really new to all this, I'm ment to have clear skies tomorrow over where I am, so ill go out and have a play about with it all that's probably the best thing I can do thanks for the tips though
  10. No I haven't polar aligned it, I'm not sure how to do that as I've said the instruction manual isn't really as clear as it could be , so doing a one star alignment is a better option then me normally doing a two star?
  11. Yes I already understand about it not being how you see in pictures etc, I see what you mean though its going to be a trial and error kind of thing, but ill give it a go next time I get some clear sky, will I need to use the tracking function on my telescope? I haven't a clue how to set that up yet, the instructions are not that clear, if I do need it I will have to work that out. Thanks for the quick replies though.
  12. I saw the nebula for the first time last night, (27th January 2013) I was wondering if there is a common exposure time or is each telescope different? I'm new to all of this as I got my telescope for the Christmas just gone, I've done pictures of the moon easily it's the planets and nebula I'm struggling with can anyone help? The telescope I've got is Skymax 127 SynScan AZ GOTO Telescope i understand I may need a new mount as the one I've got isn't the best if there's tips or trick id be glad to listen Thanks Chris Twell
