Have an Astromaster 130 EQ . Tried looking at Jupiter and Saturn.
Here are the pieces that have been used:
1. 20mm and 10 mm eyepiece (original)
2. 2X and 3X barlow (bought separately)
3. 16 mm and 32 mm plossol.
Tried various combinations to get a better view of Jupiter and Saturn.
Get same views no matter what, details lacking in all of them.
Cannot see Jupiter Bands OR the GRS (know this is not always visible) Can see Jupiter and its moons. Jupiter appears as a bright round with no details.
Saturn can see : tiny with rings but there is a light distortion.
Any suggestions on how to get better views?
We can see the moon clearly with the 20mm and 10mm eyepiece.
Hoping for clearer skies ,
