  4. Buying lenses is hard lol, didnt know they are so many things i have to take in to account like what age i am for pupil dilation . Well i am 23 so quite good eyesight and do not wear glasses, my gazing buddy does , but he will just have to settle for the lenses we have. The lense i want is for seeing the objects bigger like i stated earlier, since jupiter is really small with the lens i have. And as suggested 7mm-6mm so the 6.2mm should be ok and i have no idea what a possel is lol. im a newbie
  5. I have a Skywatcher Skyliner 150P Dobsonian, i want better mag like for things to be bigger, i think i got a 10mm one with the scope

  7. Hi i am wanting a new lense for better magnification, but really i have no idea what i am looking for is this one right (in the link) Skywatcher - Skywatcher SP Plossl eyepieces if so can you tell me if its good or if its the wrong thing can you point me towards the correct one
  8. Uranus visible with the naked eye? ive been trying to find uranus ive tried to the right of jupiter and up slightly,but nothing so was wondering if it is even slightly visible so i can have some sort of point of reference
  9. How do i know what star is what object (planet etc) People have suggested different programs to use so you know where the object is roughly but when i point the scope i could be looking at anything is there a way of knowing where the objects are or is it just through experience that i will learn, cause all ive seen is jupiter for the past 3 weeks and its cause its the easiest to find, but getting a bit boring lookin at the same thing lol
  10. I was really hoping it was not needed to be collimated I am flighty scared to try fix it in case I make it a lot worse
  11. HI I live just outside of Glasgow in east kilbride
  12. I wonder what I am doing wrong , I don't think o am using a Barlow could that be why? I wish I new someone that knew about all this stuff so they can fix my scope for me
  13. Hi all, can soome one tell me, what is a barlow
  14. like if you look at any star with the naked eye its like a silver shiny colour thats the way jupiter is when i look through the scope
  15. that is basically what i see apart from jupiter is just a shiny star colour and is a tad smaller
  16. i am in scotland and i think it is collimated lol am a newbie lol
  17. Ive just texted my friend who normally comes out with me and he says he only see's it in a "star colour, so it shouldnt be my eyes causing the problems lol
  18. yeah it was a kinda band, i wonder how you can see colour and i cant if we have the same scopes , i must bee doing something wrong lol, but what i dont know
  19. there would be a good chance that it wasnt i ring i seen lol it just seem like a faint line through the centre,maybe was grasping at straws lol, wanted to see something exciting lol
  20. i normallly used sky walk and another few apps i have on my iphone and once i met a guy that was out with his telescope and he said it was juipter. i just use the lenses that come wit the telescope they are ( from page) Eyepieces Supplied (1.25"): 10mm & 25mm
  21. yeh i think its jupiter, it is very bright with the naked eye, then though the telescope i see 4 moons (one time only 3) and what i think was a ring, i am almost certain it is jupiter.
  22. i cant see the colour of jupiter i wish i could, my telescope wasnt that expensice so maybe thats why, its a Skywatcher Skyliner 150P Dobsonian
  23. Do you every see the colour of the planets through the telescope or is it always a "star colour" Sometimes i feel like an idiot asking questions on here lol:o
