  1. I have a Skywatcher 114/900mm EQ2 Reflector. I would say my skies are pretty good, I can faintly (very faintly) see the milky way where I am located, I am close to the center of my city though which I guess would have a big affect though I don't notice that much difference when I go out of the city into 'Dark Places'
  2. Hi all, Just wondering what magification is best to view nebulas in? I have lenses that view at 36x, 90x, 150x and then a barlow lens. I am trying to view the Eagle Nebula and the Omega Nebula, the Orion Nebula will be visible for me in December so looking for advice for that too.
  3. First time I have ever taken a photo of Jupiter and Saturn, and an amazing photo of the Moon that I took through my phone
  4. Sweet thanks, any reccomendations on what mounts? I need one that can adapt to a dual camera phone, because all the phones in my househound have dual cameras. Also, where can I share my photos of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn?
  5. Hello from Auckland, NZ! I am relatively new to astronomy, buying my first telescope in November 2018. I am especially intreseted in the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter + it's moons! I currently have a Skywatcher 114/900 EQ1 Telescope, with a 6mm lens (150x), 10mm (90x) lens, 25mm (36x) lens and a Barlow Lens. I am open to trying new lens and ideas related with astronomy, and currently am attempting to build a phone adapter to take higher quality images with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S9+) I'm excited to learn more from this forum! Kind Regards, Matthew
