Thanks all for the replies, this is such a nice community think I'm gonna try again tonight if there's a break in the clouds, with my eyepieces I can only get 36x, 72x, 90x, and 180x so I'll probably just start with the lowest, probably like I shoulda last night, and build up to where there's a balance between mag and detail. Can't wait haha, gonna be a long work day
Hi, complete beginner here first night out with my new Skywatcher Evostar 90, and managed to focus on Jupiter n saw 4 moons, which was awesome. But Jupiter itself was only a white ball, and could see some bands, but they were very fuzzy, as if they were out of focus, but I had it as focused as I could. It's been very hot today, could that affect the seeing? The stars don't twinkle too much, but that's pretty much all I can think of, as I believe a 90mm refractor should have enough aperture to resolve detail. Magnification was 180x.
