  1. Hey, it's me again. I had some real life problems so I was gone for a while. Turned out my family doesn't like me so much and gave me another telescope then the one I wanted, and they got my sis a 600$ Phone. Anyways to the point: My telescope is a National Geographic™ NG525 700×60 (or 60×700) telescope. I went outside to a clear place and watched some near objects with it, everything was blurry. Can anyone help me? How can I send a picture???
  2. No....I am planning to go to a college outside of Egypt
  3. thanks! you are the second one I know that is from the Netherlands! I do not know how to speak dutch but I can speak really good german and frensh!
  4. Why do I need Allies when I dont have enemies? Ha
  5. Ha! My name is yousif..you can call me that! I always get A and B in my math and science exams, (4th grade-till now), do not need to worry about that
  6. Possibly, Thanks! I hope Egypt is a good spot to watch the universe
  7. thanks for the support guys, I think I am getting it in my birthday !
  8. You are probably right, but I live in a mountain south west of cairo so....
  9. People do say that Egyptians live in the desert right? this isn't completely wrong..I can always go somewhere without light (the desert) , binoculars,I am sick of them!
  10. I think this would be a good choice for a beginner. Right? Skywatcher Skyliner 200P Dobsonian The UK's most popular Dobsonian telescope. "The Skyliner 200’s flat-packed base is very easy to build and set up, and comes with excellent instructions….The optics were sharp across 80% of the 1 degree field of view….We were very pleased with the appearance of al the test objects – we even managed to find the Crab Nebula, M81 and M82 in near-full Moonlight, whereas the other scopes were struggling. Under darker skies the Double Cluster had that ‘Wow’ factor when it was centred using the 25mm eyepiece, as did M35. The Pleiades (M45) was just a bit too large to fit in the field of view, but the main central stars looked stunning….Turning to Saturn, the view really took our breath away: we saw five moons, a clear-cut Cassini Division and a colour difference between the A and B rings. Not only that, but Saturn also displayed a prominent belt – with this scope planetary detail is certainly not compromised….Fans of deep-sky observing would certainly find the Skyliner satisfying….The Skyliner was a joy to use.” BBC SKY AT NIGHT MAGAZINE Features and specification Magnifications (with eyepieces supplied): x48 & x120 Highest Practical Power (Potential): x406 Diameter of Primary Mirror: 203mm Telescope Focal Length: 1200mm (f/5.91) Eyepieces Supplied (1.25"): 10mm & 25mm Dual-Fit 1.25"/2" Crayford-style Focuser Parabolic Primary Mirror with Protective Silicon-Dioxide Overcoat Super-smooth Azimuth Movement with Teflon Pads Diffraction Limited Optics 0.5mm Ultra-Thin Secondary Mirror Supports 9x50 Finderscope Direct SLR Camera Connection Wooden Alt-Azimuth Mount with Accessory Tray 77% more Light Gathering than 150mm
  11. Well, Thanks for the reply, I am 14 and going to turn 15 in 2 months!
  12. Hey I am new to this forum, For now I am going to be heading towards (amateur astronomy hobbyist) till I finish my education and hopefully become an astronomer! I am really interested in astronomy,but sadly I miss the equipment ,My equipment for now is : Strong binoculars My eyes A kids toy telescope well, I really am most fascinated by galaxies and nebulae, so i am waiting (since 8 months) that my mum gets money and buys me a real telescope! So does anyone know any good cheap (100$-300$) telescopes which can see galaxies? If anyone would give me a link to buy it I would really appreciate it!
