Hi everyone! I have a Celestron Astromaster 114 eq (114/1000mm), and I do use it whenever I can, but I'm still quite the newbie when it comes to observing. My point is, I'd like to observe the planets, but I dont't think the standard eyepieces that came with my telescope (10 mm and 20 mm) are powerful enough for that. For reference, the "furthest" I could see were the rings of Saturn , but they were very small and faint too. Are there any specific eyepieces you could recommend? :) And of course, any tipps and advice are also very much appreciated. Thanks, Sophie.
The awful seeing conditions continue where I am but I at least managed to get this in between the clouds last night: Details: Tasco 302012 114mm reflector telescope.

Hello Dear Friends(I have two!) and Community, I acquired this lil guy over the weekend. Like many other users I had been hesitant about a reflector (collimation, and whatnot) but at 22 Euros I could not pass. Actually I simply wanted the mount (my first manual EQ!!), as it looked to be good for my starter needs. Now the data plate (real thin sheet steel!) says it's a Revue, (an old German optical/lens/eyeglass company I believe) however it's got a Japan label elsewhere and my guess is it's a re-badged Vixen. Am I right and would anyone like to enlighten me on what a gem or stinker it is? I gave it a nice cleaning (simple green, damp cloth) and used a hair dryer to hopefully loosen and rid it of cob webs that were inside (not a lot but I certainly could not there in there). Btw: What are the Dec and RA knobs normally called? I love the tiny bulb lamp (works!! 2xAAs) Last but not least the EPs (5,10,20mm) came with one each screw-on sun and moon filters (How cool is that!!!?) I appreciate all insights in advance! John
