  1. You are a Gentleman and a Scholar Alan64. My next will be one like yours for sure..this one just fell in my lap and an upgrade so I'm running with it lol
  2. What would you guess is the most powerful magnification this beast will handle Alan64?
  3. Currently upgrading components for that very reason .. My woman saw it on sale but im happy to have it for sure. Thank you Astrid
  4. Im super happy that it was as simple as it was..thank you..fine tuning the red dot as close to perfect as i can get it so i dont have to move the telescope much once im on target ...luckily i can see a telephone pole half a mile away and if i can find something farther I will finish tuning it to that... If y'all are still reading ..will a 114 mm Newtonian give noticeably better views of planets than my Gskyler 70/400? The Newtonian is a national geographic 114...model NT114PM..
  5. Removed the diaganol...that was it...thank y'all so much
  6. No extension tube...and tried both the 90 degree and 45 degree ...
  7. Just got a new Newtonian thst will not focus even in daylight...dust cap is off and im usng a 25 mm lense... Do you think the mirror just needs collimated?
  8. Is it possible to turn an automotive back up camera into a telescope camera ? I ask because im researching CCD cameras and they are cheap and readily accessible under the automotive line..
  9. Is there a free stacking software ? Maybe its called bracketing ..for pics?
  10. What do you guys prefer for a spotting scope ..lazer or red dot?
  11. I'm keeping an eye on FB marketplace ...not sure of other places within my local area to look..id drive a few hours for a deal for sure..are the dobs difficult to use as long as they are collaminated? And how difficult is it to collaminate? I dont wanns get into something beyond my skill level....yet lol
  12. Bet the views are great out west ..and a dob will def be my next scope
