  1. Thanks Amanda. I'll have to find something similar from a company located here in North America to keep the shipping price down. But the info on the filters you gave is very helpful. So thanks again Phil
  2. Is it worth it to buy a better name brand filter? I'm looking to buy a moon filter and was wondering if its worth it to buy an Orion or Celestron, or even one of the cheap ones. Is there anything specific I should be looking for? Thanks
  3. Thanks Man, that was extremely helpful. I appreciate it a lot.
  4. Hey everyone, Can someone recommend a good planetarium program? Is there one that's better for a beginner or one that is better than the rest? I'm sure everyone has a different opinion so if you could let me know why you like a particular program that would be great. Thanks, Phil
  5. Hey everyone, I've been surfing ebay (mainly for astronomy stuff) and I notice that there are different sizes of eye pieces. How do I know what size mine takes? The manual doesn't say. I was also wondering if its worth it to buy a converter? Thanks in advance.
  6. Ok, I've been reading lists or useful/rrecommended things to buy and some lists say to get a green laser light. 2 questions 1) What use does this have? 2) And why does the laser light have to be green? Thanks in advance

    Hey everyone, I'm a noobie to the forum and Astronomy. I look forward to learning about the hobby and reading posts on the forum, as well as getting to know you all. I live in Northern Ontario and was just given my first telescope (I have a thread in the equipment help section, if you can help that would be awesome). So I guess a "Hey" goes out to everyone.
  9. Just found the manual online. Can anyone help with the DVD?
  10. Hi, I'm new here and am going to be starting to get into astronomy. I friend gave me a Galileo FS-85MOHDX telescope. The only thing is he doesn't know where the manual or DVD that came with it is. Does anyone know where I can view the manual and get a copy of the DVD? Thanks in advance
