  3. Hello I wanted to assemble a refractive telescope astronomical with a good viewing of milky way and other entities . This is for reason , one is i will have the knowledge while assembling it so any issue can solve it myself, secondly very important the cost can any one help in thanks shyam menon
  4. agree, mistake done how do i correct it. cause in my part of the world here we have no one interested in astronomy. Now need to correct it ,also this mistakes do teach us how to come out of it with a good support from this amazing team here on stargazer lounge . Also to remind that here till last week was a rainy season. So may to Nov never touched the telescope and i forgot Lol... Now its a action time regards shyam menon
  5. hi it looks like the photo , how do i correct it, and what is a comma corrector. I would prefer not to buy comma corrector at least for a time due to short of fund , i had removed the focusser corrector lens to insert laser to correct the path . i dont know whether the corrector lense position and primary and secondary mirror position . Moon looks ok only issue is stars regards shyam menon
  6. it looks somewhat the same as i sent like an inverted coma with star like a half moon
  7. hello its like an inverted coma kind of thing with star being like a smal half moon . when i look to the star defocussed i dont see a round with cross inside rather sees a distorted round with top portion a bit elongated and down ok . best regards shyam menon
  8. hello This is not the picture i have taken, this is just to show that my telescope also gives this kind of image exactly . kindly help to resolve this machine regards shyam menon

    hi there is a lens inside the focuser tube thansk shyam menon
  12. Hello a very good day to all out there. As the Rainy season getting over in my part of kerala in India.Now i have started to get along with the telescope celestrone astromaster 114 eq. Now while doing collimation i could see in the eye peice two objects one the primary and with that spider with a small dougnut kind of thing. Now my doubt is when the barlow correcting lens removed and seen through the eye peice i can see my eye is it correct ? bit of confusion after a long gap . Now when lookin through the eyepiece installed in normal state, am i seeing the object in the dougnut thats where i saw my eye when barlow removed . thanks shyam menon
  13. hi untill unless our face in not seen properly in the primary reflector, would prefer not to clean the mirrors. Rather than cleaning mirror often i would say collimation is a must if not daily once every two months.
