  9. Hi, Really need some help, I'm starting to take a serious interest into astronomy ive got a 60mm by 700mm scope at the moment, skywatcher it is, but i want something a bit more powerful, there is so much on the market it is really hard to work out the next move. My budget is probably 350 to 400 quid but id really like it to have one of these computerised mounts so i can tap in what I'm looking for and track it. I would like something where i can get closer look more detail on distant stars. Ive never used any other type of telescope but i would also like to be able to travel with it easy eno
  10. It was only on a second hand sight i saw, didnt know if it was any good that is all but thanks for the advice. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Hi, great article there you did brush over apps that can be used may i ask what apps you think are the best. On it it said about apps for taking photos with phone and also apps for cloud cover, ive downloaded aurora watch uk and ive got a stargazer app to help me identify things. Any other apps you suggest? Thanks Jimmy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Hi andy Im in the heart of norwich city myself, so don't get fantastic views of the skies Does it get busy? Im a little nervous of going to be honest as i do not know very much and have only just started out But i defo should be coming down on one of those nights going to take a trip during the day so i know the route to go so i don't get lost! Im on the Facebook page as well, but its very quiet up here in norfolk, not too many astronomers? I will take all the advice i can get. Is it worth me bringing my scope down? Its a refractor its not one of them advanced ones but its my starting point
  16. Thanks for all the reply's!! Ive posted a few times so far and getting lots of information which is great hopefully someday i can help someone out too when i gain vast knowledge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. thank you dave for replying, the barlow lens came with it, you see all these beautiful images that people post and you want to look at these through your telescope, obviously this is just a starting point for me, i can pick out the constellations, up above now but when i am stargazing im in the heart of a city so lighting does effect, what other eye pieces do you think i should get, ive shown my son the moon with the 20mm and the 10 mm but would like to have an even closer look at it. I dont wanna pay out too much on this scope as i know in a years time i assume i will be looking at upgrading
  18. Made in china as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Its a sky watcher 607az2 d is 60mm f is 700 mm barlow was just the standard x2 that came with it, the missus got me it as a starting point as she new i was into all things space [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. yes even after adjusting it.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Ok so just a further update moon was out sky was clear thought id have a look through the scope, i made sure everything was all correct, when i put my barlow lens in its blurry i try to adjust but doesnt work? Should this happen? The moon was behind just peeping over some leaves, by the looks of it it made the leaves more sharper, does this sound like a faulty barlow? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Better get the missus set up to record it, its after the soaps so should be fine lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Ahh ok thanks ive got bt so should have it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
