  1. Thanks so much for all that info, and I was talking about the barlow lens.
  2. I just got my first telescope on Sunday I got my first telescope, and I was wondering if I would be able to see any. It's aperture is 80 mm. I have a 3x magnification lens, then a 25 or 10 mm lens behind that. Thanks.
  3. No I haven't seen the double cluster. What does it look like through the scope? All I've seen so far is the moon, and some stars that just look like tiny specs through the scope.
  4. What would Mars look like through a 80 mm telescope? I just got it yesterday so I have no idea what I'm doing, or what I can even see. Thanks all.

    Thanks Beyond. And to break, I just looked on-line at all the book stores around me, and none of them have it. My parents told me I could get two books so I might just get that and one other one that I saw a few days ago. Can't remember the title to save my life.

    Alright. If you could pick one book for a beginner, what would it be? I want one that will explain physics, or at least just talk about it. I can't choose one out off all the ones that have been suggested. Thanks guys.

    Wow, thanks a bunch guys. Really, you don't know how much this means to me. As to the reading, I just got back from the library, and I managed to pick up "A brief history of time." Whoever said to pickup "The Universe in a Nutshell," I almost did! One thing I want you all to keep in mind is that I know NOTHING about physics as of right now. I'm going to try and take it next year, but I haven't even taken Calculus yet, either. Another thing: I'm only 15. I know very little about the universe, I'm just amazed by it. I want and NEED books that will introduce me to things, and explain them as well. My school system doesn't really focus on Astronomy or physics at all. This is why I would like to do all the work on my own, and a little at a college course I'm taking next year on Astronomy. And finally, I would hope you guys wouldn't mind helping out just a bit extra. If I get confused by something, could I post it here, to see if anyone can explain it to me. I just want to thank everyone again, you guys are helping out a lot.

    Yea, I was looking into that one. I may pick it up sometime, but I think it may be a little to early. Thanks for the help though

    I want to start off by saying that for as long as I can remember, I've always looked up on a clear night, and wondered to myself, how it all happened. I love thinking about what could be out there, and if anything was looking back, and asking itself the same question. It's kind of funny, really. Every time I see something on the television about our universe, or hawking, I have to watch it. That man fascinates me. Now, I'm a sophomore in high school, and college seems like it's right around the corner. Saying that, I want to do as much as I can, while I can. This is partially why I am here. I know this community has to be great, and I would think you guys wouldn't mind giving me your input on certain things. One of these being books. As I said, I'm a sophomore, and I want to get the best books that are at my disposal, so I can learn basic things in astrophysics, let alone others. I know I may seem like a teen that thinks of a new dream every day, but I'm not. I've always wanted to be something that dealt with the universe, or the unknown. Whether it was an astronaut when I was just a little boy, or majoring in astrophysics as I want to right now. After saying all that, I would like to just ask you one question right now. What are some books that you would recommend for a student in high school. Thanks for reading, and I would like to thank you in advance for your help.
