  1. Hi Goose holla, great advice, thx. I'm in the process of working out how to find things so looking forward to seeing more than the moon . First is a good (Ish) Barlow and maybe the ep's you mentioned, my scope is only 5" but when I'm ready for an upgrade I can still use the ep's, cheers.
  2. Thanks for the price guide Ronin il keep all that in mind. My budget is limited as yet and my knowledge of astronomy is less so I'm gonna try and find out what the middle of the road Barlow is/costs and start there then work my way up. Thanks Ronin.
  3. So I can get a Barlow lens that does 1.5 and 2x. I've just been looking on fleabay and looked at the celestron EP kit but maybe Learn to walk first, thx for the reply Michael. Hi laurie I'll take a look at the Celestron X-Cel, I might try the webcam method. Thx guys, very gratefull.
  4. Thanks Michael I'm just trying to get my head around how to find different things. I think I will get a Barlow and leave it at that for a while, again thanks for the advice.
  5. Hi all, I have a Celestron AM 130eq with a 20mm and a 10mm eyepiece that came with it. I was wondering if anybody has any experience with this scope that they could pass on ? I understand it's an entry level scope but I was hoping to find out what eye pieces etc I could get To improve my viewing, which at this time is limited to the moon, without spending to much. In time I would like to go down the photography route and not sure if this scope is capable of any half decent images. Any advice would be welcome thx Ohhhhh. Erm . . . . . What's a Barlow do ? (Feel like I've just asked a stupid question lol)
  6. Hi Martin, one newbie to another welcome.
  7. Thx guys. Hi Barry and Nathan, I'm in Teignmouth but originally from Lancashire. Been down here just over a year, best move I ever made. Yes Stridor skies are great, will be better when I can navigate them.
  8. Thx for the additional welcomes, very friendly site.
  9. Thanks to all for the replies and the advice Will look at stellarium and see if I can get my head around it, again thx all
  10. I'd just like to say hi to everyone and thank you for a great site. I've always had a tendency to look up on clear nights, and when I was offered an unused celestron am 130eq for a reasonable sum I jumped at it. I've been checking the site for a couple of weeks and I'm astonished at what goes on behind the scenes so to speak. Being a newbie I thought you bought a scope and....... Well pointed and looked. But I have to admit the science involved and associated with stargazing is mind blowing (in a good way) Well thx for reading and hope this isn't just a fad on my part and I can delve a little deeper.
