  1. I watched some video of the eclipse, I noticed the sky was lit as the eclipse took place. My question is, how can the sky be lit if the moon is blocking out the sun. It seems strange to have no sun, but yet have a lit skyline. Any explanation please Chaza
  2. Thanks I'll keep trying, I'll, get the app Cheers
  3. Hi Stu Yes I'm using a filter. What scope woukd uou say is a good one to see more than my binos. What are the filters you talk about. Cheers
  4. What size scope will I need to observe sun spots. My binos are 20 x 80 and I can't see any at all. I'm a bit disappointed at what I can see other than just stars, which I can see with my eyes. I'm still waiting to view some planets which I haven't found yet, or should I say I don't think I have. Thanks

    That's what I thought, when I was shown this photo, given its 483 light years away,there is no way any photo could be got. What is your take on this so called nibiru that some claim is in our solar system that no one has seen. Thanks
  6. Can anyone answer this. I was shown a photo of what was claimed to be carrots, 487 light years away, how can anyone take a photo of this sun that distance away.
  7. I think it's h, why should I start high, and what are the barlows for then. Thanks
  8. Can explain why 25 mm first, is the bigger number better magnification. As for the barlows, don't they double the magnification as they say.
  9. Hi I have read about eye peices but I don't seem to get it. My telescope has 100 mm aperture, its about 24 inches long, i have 2 barlows, 3.3 ,2. My lenses are 25,12.5,4 mm. What combination should I use to see, let's say saturn. Thanks, I don't get it.
  10. Sorry it's off topic, I've just started, I have no experience, I want to see the planets and stuff, so it's more a point of guidance. I'd like photos, but not that bothered. Will I achieve this with my 20 x 80 binos
  11. Thanks for that, it doesn't fill me with vim, I think I'll be disappointed, but I'll wait till I get so e clear skies. What is tne best time to go watching, midnight, 4 am, what.
  12. Thanks for that, I haven't had a clear night to do any gazing, but I suspect I'm expecting too much. I did look at the moon tne other day, it was cloudy, but I didn't see detail of tne moon as I expected to. I don't know what to expect, but if I find Saturn for example, will be any be to see its rings. I know I won't be able to see what the probe saw as it passed, but I want to see more than a white speck in the sky, the same white speck I can see with my eye.
  13. So are you saying the binos ate not practical, what scope is a good one.
