  1. i go outside in my yard. its pretty dark, but i think ppl think im crazy when the see me sitting in the middle of my yard at midnight. i dont have a scope for an excuse.lol
  2. it didnt. it was my old guitar and i wanted to give it a cool paintjob.
  3. thanks for the advice everyone! I will probably just buy a decent scope in the future. It kinda seems like too much trouble... for now

    hello Zak. welcome
  5. an you see the color of saturn with these binoculars or just the light? just wondering about the capabilities
  6. suckes to hear about the adapter, but these are the binocs that i aim to get when i get the money
  7. I guess you can consider me a do it yourselfer. I've built a pc. ATTEMPTED to repaint an old guitar. Refurbished my house. I like to get hobbies, but sometimes go overboard too quick. At the moment, i'm just focused on getting my celestron 15x70 binoculars, but i'm considering building my own dobsonian later on. My question is, Is it suggested for someone like me? I've never owned a telescope before so I don't know if I would have the right outcome when i'm done. I'm obviously gonna research everything and not approach this uninformed, but again have never used a telescope before. Another thing is, Would a handmade scope perform as well as say a zhumell dobsonian or the like? I know the primary mirror plays a major role, but does the tube or anything like that play a part in the quality? Another thing is, is it cost effective? I noticed on telescopes.com the zhumell z10 is $500. If i were to build a 10 inch dobsonian, would the cost of parts be the same or more? Any input on a first timer would be helpful. Thanks!
  8. it's totally capella guys/gals. i feel so duped by the universe right now.lol. i traveled 15 miles to the darkest field i knew to check it out and i spotted capella along with other stars in different directions that were near the horizon. its just something that i didnt know happened. its pretty awesome actually. makes me want bigger optics
  9. im not sure. i'll try find it to find capella tonight to confirm, buti don't think the colors are due to diffraction. the colors have been the same for three nights and the blinking of the red light has been at the same rate. i tried to take a picture of it last night, but my camera is not sensitive enough
  10. and they don't usually have lights on them do they?
  11. nice. whats it called? im a newb. nevermind. i looked a second time and found my answer. im also an idiot as well. :|
  12. I've been goin out every night for the past three nights and see this same twinkling light in the sky. Its like a solid green light and a blinking red light on the same craft. in my 10x25s is barely in focus. In my sky in louisiana its in between perseus and camelopardalis. Always in the same spot, its been there for three days. Its also too high to be a tower or something like that. Is there any kind of aircraft or weather balloon that will hover in the same spot for upwards of three days? I also don't want to shout UFO because i don't want to sound like an idiot. i just want to know what it MIGHT be .
