  1. yes you can see the Milky Way with your eyes , you can even see the Andromeda galaxy with only your eyes.I can see it from my backyard (i live in a small village) ,but your eyes have to be adapted to the dark 40-1h in the dark and u can even see the double cluster C14 under Cassiopeia ,which is really close to Andromeda
  2. if you dont want to hurt ur eyes for sure you need moon filter or UHC filter if u can spend more $$ its more usefull for moon+make faint objects more visible during observation

    Another suspicious eBay sale

    Imaging with the 130pds

    this level of contrast...im dying , its so cool
  7. go get a nice 2x Barlow Lens with T-adaptor and you are good to go , 3x Barlow is way too much for this scope
  8. just want to add something about telescopes without GoTo - Its such a satisfaction when u finally find the target you looking for.I think just for me is more exciting xD thats why Dobsonian all the way baby !
  9. u talk about GoTo mounts ,and they're expensive , a decent GoTo Mount is around £300
  10. for £400 u can easily afford skywatcher dobsonian 8" f/6 ,its really good scope
  11. u can try the Barlow lens with the 10mm but dont expect alot afterall its a small scope ,but i think u could see jupiter belts if its dark enough around you Clear skies.
  12. Hello everyone , i want to ask if this Zhumell kit https://www.telescopesplus.com/products/zhumell-telescope-1-25-inch-eyepiece-and-filter-kit is any good for a small telescope 114mm reflector (its going to be gift for a friend ,new in astronomy) a guy in my area offered me this full set for around $40 i just wanna know your opinion on that kit it looks decent afterall

    everytime i open this topic im with my left hand on my forehead with the right hand scrolling and only one think comes to my mind * Holy S**t * ...that topic is actually insane
  14. sorry for my bad english first xD Hello , snice i have no idea what to look for and i kinda want something for beginner i saw that used scope for around $150 at first looked really what im looking for ,but also i thought there may be something wrong and i just wanted to ask is this price okay for the scope and if not what can go wrong. The telescope is bought 2002 and it comes with Plossl 25mm ,moon filter , some bonus filter (idk xD) and MEADE Plossl 5 Element 20mm I saw the original scope in the box have 30mm 2" but snice the price is that low i dont really expected the 30mm Anyway the only thing that comes to my mind (im not telecope expert) is that maybe the cooling fan is missing and because of the DIY things on side of the scope.Please help xD if there's something more i should look for or if its bad scope at all ill just leave it ---- thank you in advice
