  2. Hi all.....I got a t ring to attach my canon eos 700d to a skywatcher scope..I know my red dot is spot on in terms of alignment but when I try to view Jupiter through the camera live view screen I see nothing...I've tried the scope focus but no joy.......are there certain settings I need to set my camera to to get an image..? Also while I've got your attention what are your opinions on 14mm f2.8 samyang lenses...?

  9. Hi everyone..despite a cloudy night Jupiter was on view ,so for the first time I got my new telescope( skywatcher 130 eq2) out for a look.time wasn't on my side so I couldn't align to Polaris but assumed as long as I wasn't intending to fully track it that wouldn't be a problem.i managed to find it momentarily and was thrilled..! I then lost it when I knocked the tripod..DOH! the problem I got was despite my best efforts to line my scope to findJupiter again I just couldn't get it in view...! Was proper frustrating..any tips for me please..I used my finderscope ...I have a 10mm a 25mm and Barl
  10. Hi everyone. After many years of hints I'm finally going to be unwrapping a telescope for my birthday. After research I chose a skywatcher 130 for £199. Reviews I read all seemed to be positive....my expectations of what I will be able to see are ,I feel, realistic,but I would like to know what is good to observe in the summer and are there any recommendations for dark sky's in the Chirk/wrexham area.....
