  1. Thanks, do you think I would also be able to see some of andromeda Furthermore, could you link me to a 2x Barlow which would be compatible with this telescope
  2. Yes I understand thank you, could I ask what camera and lense you were using when you took it
  3. I would love to do that except I live in London and the sky there is very rarely good, at the moment I am in turkey and the sky here is immaculate, no light pollution, sky completely dark
  4. I want to be able to see detailed views of planets but also nebula. Do you think I am able to with such a telescope. I am willing to buy any extra lenses that would help.
  5. Thanks for your reply, I’m interested in getting good views of planets but a greater interest, I didn’t think I would be able to achieve with this scope, however you say I am able to see deep space objects such as messier. Which lense could I get with this telescope to be able to see Messier objects. Thank you.
  6. At the moment I use a begginers INTEY telescope with a 70mm diameter and a 400mm focal length. This came with a 6 and 25mm lense. Now this is good for seeing the moon but that’s about it and therefore I want to go for a much more powerful telescope at a higher price. I’ve been doing some research and decided to get this telescope https://www.amazon.co.uk/Celestron-31145-NexStar-Computerised-Telescope/dp/B0007UQNNQ/ref=pd_aw_sim_sbs_421_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=B50SJHHAXDBQDVWNANDG however I am not an expert and would therefore appreciate a second opinion. Is this worth its price? What can I expect to see? What views am I able to achieve?
  7. The article below suggested that I should be able to see very little but some detail of Jupiter or Mars, however they just appear as white discs the size of a pea. Is that what I should expect of this telescope?
  8. I am a beginner and am currently using an INTEY telescope with a 400mm focal length and 70mm diameter with a 4mm lense. I try to look at Venus or Mars, but I can only see them as tiny specs. Am I expecting too much of telescope or am I doing something wrong?
  9. Great picture, with the moon as well. I’ll look into the telescope you recommended, Thank you.
  10. The sky is very dark with no light pollution whatsoever, it is on the very west side of Turkey by the Agean sea.
  11. Thanks, although would you say that you are able to see planets like Saturn and Jupiter?
  12. I’m a beginner, I started of with a 70mm focal length telescope with a 4mm lense. With this I am able to see the moon in fine detail however all other planets appear very small. Mars for example, I can see with me eyes and when I look through the telescope it is barely magnified. My question is; What telescope could I buy at a £300-400 budget to see all the planets in the solar system and perhaps even nebula from Andromeda.
