  1. Hi everyone, i am a complete novice to appraising the heavens through a tube with mirrors and would like some advice. I have a Sky-watcher 130p with EQ2 mount ( B-day present as requested from my wife) which came with a 10mm and 25mm super wide eyepieces. I also got a 2x barlow (standard quality if not cheap) and green hue filter (asked for moon). I have been extremely pleased with the views of Jupiter although its famous storm is hiding on the wrong side atm, i was gobsmacked when i could see the rings on Saturn. Then i realised a little patience paid off and i noticed the little sparks of light in a line with both planets were not just the reflections of crappy optics but their moons i came to the conclusion I need more........ So this is where i draw upon the vast knowledge here and ask for your help. I would like to purchase some accessories...barlows, eyepieces, filters or whatever would help. I understand that i cant go and buy some televue 5x barlow and expect the universe to be burned into my retina but can i ask for some sensible advice? Ihave looked at a 3x barlow and some 6mm eyepieces i don't mind spending some money on quality kit now and not regretting it later (always a new scope on the horizon) thanks in advance
