  1. Sorry for responding late. My skies are not bad but you can still see a lot of stars. Are m81 and 82 colliding galaxies?
  2. Yes, yesterday I saw orion. But never ever saw Pleiades
  3. I tried searching for some easy deep sky objects on the internet but I never got a staright answer. Could someone please name some easy targets that I could use tonight. Mostly in Canis Major or in Canis Minor if possible. The deep sky objects that I am trying to find are quite simple. That can be seen by binoculars. Thanks, any help would always be appreciated.
  4. Haha. Thanks for the info. MANCHESTER IS RED!
  5. Since I am very new to this, I struggle a lot. Especially when observing planets and also recently deep sky objects. My telescope is an amateur telescope and its almost 11 years old (The telescope was re used a year ago). During summer of last year I took photos of Saturn,Jupiter and a month ago took photos of Venus and Mars. About 2 days ago I stumbled upon a new thing in the sky, (Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture). It definitely was in the Orion constellation as I had observed Betelgeuse and the 3 stars that were close to each other. After a couple of minutes later I saw 2 stars next to each other and another two which were on top of the other star, surrounding these set of stars were a blue-ish and grey-ish colour at the same time. I had done some research and many people told me it was the trapezium cluster found in Orion. I honestly don't know. Any ideas? Thanks.
  6. So, if I want to observe something at daytime I use the erecting eyepiece? What should I observe at daytime? P.S: Sorry for the weird questions, I am very new to this.
  7. So I'm having some issues recently and have a lot of questions for the erecting eyepiece 1.5x. I want to know if they are useful, better, and i also want to know if they have a lot of detail in them. How do you use a erecting eyepiece? What is it for? When can i use it? Also my issue is when I try to use an erecting eyepiece on a star it is out of focus and cant seem to find the right focus. yesterday I had tried on sirius but it just showed me a huge ball of light. Any help and tips will be appreciated.
