  1. I had just the 1.25" adapter in earlier when I had it out during the night sky, and either way I extended it all the way in or all the way out of focus, the weird inside tube view was still present. I tried finetuning the focuser to no avail. I cannot remember entirely in regards to which way makes the circle of light smaller, sorry.
  2. Update: as I look through the eyepiece at a star, all i can see it inside my tube, with the 4 lines and circle in the middle, never reaching focus. Any help is appreciated.
  3. Hello, I have a question regarding the focusing. For some reason, I cannot seem to gain focus on any of my eyepieces without combining the 1.25" and 2" adapters. If I use just the 1.25" alone, I cannot gain focus, but if I attach that to the 2" focuser adapter and then insert it into the focuser, I am able to gain focus? Is this a collimation issue? Or is it something specific to this scope? It is a Skywatcher Skyliner 250PX. It seems as if I cannot draw the focuser out far enough with just the 1.25 attached, if I have both adapter attached I seem to be able to bring out the focuser far enough to focus. Thanks.
  4. Warm welcome to the warmest place on the internet
  5. I wouldn't risk not having it replaced, it is not worth it. You paid for the product, and the entire product, even that missing tiny bit of the secondary mirror

  7. Which do you think I would have a better time with DSO? the 10mm or the 18mm version of this EP? Thanks.
  8. I would like to thank everyone for their responses. I will take all your comments into consideration with choosing which one to buy. I can see there is quite the split decision in here, so I will do more research before I bite the bullet thanks again people!
  9. Hello Ruud, thank you for your suggestion. In regards to the EP price, I do not want to splash out too much on an expensive eyepiece as I need to "find my feet" again with telescopes. I want to see which aspect of stargazing I prefer most again after the long time of not doing it. Though, the 17.5mm Morpheus I may purchase at a later date once I am comfortable with stargazing again
  10. Hello people, will be purchasing a Skyliner 250px relatively soon, and was curious, what EP should i get as a first separate buy? I want to focus more on DSO rather than planetary. Budget in mind is around 50-70 GBP if there are any decent ones within that price range? Thanks. (I have been out of the astronomy "game" ever since I left England, and I am now visiting the hobby once again.)
  11. Thank you very much for that link. Unfortunately the course doesn't start until February, so I will keep that website in mind and take a look around I'm not doing it just for my own knowledge, it'll be my girlfriend looking through it too
  12. Hey there, this post is just asking if anyone of you know of where there are online astronomy courses that you can just do when you feel, or just a great site for everything about our solar system and other galaxies and such (all astronomy related information), I'm wanting to spread my interest in the most laziest way xD (gah I'm so bad)

  17. R.I.P Sir, he changed the world, gladly enough he passed at the comfort of his own home.
  18. I know how you feel, I also have eye floaters plus my vision is always fuzzy, with or without glasses. Makes my night time vision suck.
