I've had my telescope for nearly half a year, and because its England, the weather has been so bad that I've only gone out a couple times.
I hitched a tent up the other day, and with my telescope I was looking at Mars.
I observed Mars as a small white dot, and I couldn't see any detail.
I know how to focus the observation, and have been, until it is clear. but as I said, it is just a clear white dot.
If someone could give me advice on how to improve on the detail, if I have to buy anything, if I'm not doing it right, etc., then please do.
