  5. i want to know what the best way to clean my scopes lens since its gotten a desty on it. i did a post asking about it on a facebook group. i have some saying to use Baader wonder fluid and others saying just to use distilled water and Johnsons cotton balls. i would like to see what u guys in here think before i clean my mean lens on my Vixen A80Mf Refractor
  6. what about a Canon EOS Rebel T6 or a Canon EOS Rebel T3?
  7. u didnt really answer my ?... if u watched the video at all it would tell u why i want a DSLR not just for astrophotography but only stuff like youtube videos (most ppl use some type of DSLR) and to just take photots of my fish and other stuff. if u watched the video u would know i have some photography skills. as see with the pics i uploaded. now i know going in that i will be very limited on the photos i can take with my scope but i can still take pics. thats why im looking for a good "STARTER!" DSRL. cuz if i get a start DSLR and see what i can do i will want to expand upon it and get stuff like a motorized tripod. start learn those programs u guys use to take those pics with your scopes and so on, it has to start somewhere. for me it will be a good "STARTER" DSRL. then down they road i can get more stuff to help me out, now can u plz answer my ? r any of the DSLRs im looking at any good? or is there something else i could get thats $350 or less.
  8. since i suck at spelling and grammer i just went and made a video talking about a few DSLRs im looking at and wanting to know witch one would be a better choose or if there anything better i could get within a $350 max. im looking at a Nikon D3400, Canon EOS Rebel T6 or a Canon EOS Rebel T3. also note i do not have a Motorized Tripod. plz watch the video before commenting heres r those two pic i was talking about in the video. they were taken by my Canon SX620 HS one at 3sec and the other at 15sec. just like i said in the video i dont have a Motorized Tripod
  9. so i just got a Nikon Coolpic B500 and i dont know what mount i should get for it. all the mounts i see r for DSLRs that can have the lens come off. since my DSLR's lens cant idk what to get. also my scope is a Vixen A800Mf and it has a eyepiece setup like this. so ya im lost on what to get. i also did a video hoping to help if u guys cant understand what i send in my post due to my crap spelling and grammer skills.
  10. so im looking at this off of amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Gosky-Universal-Phone-Adapter-Mount/dp/B013D2ULO6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1516734759&sr=8-3&keywords=telescope%2Bcell%2Bphone%2Badapter&th=1 cuz the Vixon mount i got wont work well for me since i have a LG G5 i think its cam r just not in the right place for the mount to work right. i want to know if the mount im look at now will do the job or if there other better mount out there i could get. it really sucks having to return the vixon mount but it doesnt work for me sadly
  11. i want to get a 8in but i dont think my mother would be willing to get me other $400+ scope. i wonder if i could get one used
  12. so i already have a Vixen A80Mf and i love it! but im also looking at something like the Orion 8944 SkyQuest XT6 Classic Dobsonian Telescope for deep space viewing. im also looking at it since its under $300, i'll like to get your guys thought on that scope if it would be good for deep space or if i should go for other scope thx.
  13. ya its normal. i was freaking out over nothing, now the next step for me will be to over time upgrade the scope to make it do more and more and someday get something like vixens R200SS Newtonian Telescope (also used in the VN) im also eyeing the Orion 8944 SkyQuest XT6 Classic Dobsonian Telescope.
  14. i need to know if this is normal. i seem to have a small line in the diagonal prism and it seems to move when i look at it from the side (as seen in the video) i think its due to the prism it has but idk since i never had a telescope before.
  15. so ya. im looking for a good cleaning cloth since the ones i have will smudge all over the place, and some dust got into under the eyepiece so i messes with my viewing to where there r ghost lights.
