  1. Thank you wulfrun and John! I appreciate your input.
  2. I tried out 2x and 3x barlows (inexpensive off-brand models) with a 6mm orion eyepiece I picked up on Amazon and eBay. I had a good view of the moon and may have spotted the orion nebula for a moment. I also have a 5x barlow but it seemed too faint and blurry to be of use. I also received a Celestron 3x barlow on Amazon but I did not want to open it unless I was sure to keep it. I wanted to get some feedback on what others think about $11 barlows vs $90 name-brand barlows. From your experience is it really worth the extra cost? Serounder https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V
  3. Hello, I was curious if anyone might know the model of this telescope. All I see is "Meade" on the scope. From what I found it might be a Starfinder 12" The scope came with a 1.25 ma9mm Orion eyepiece. I thought this might be enough to make out planets but when I focused on Mars (at least what I believe was Mars using SkyMap app) it appeared more like a tiny star. I'm likely doing something wrong. I went to a site that might have provided the specs (shown in screenshot). Thanks! Aaron
