I'm thinking of getting the Orion Build-A-Scope IntelliScope Dobsonian for my next scope, (the 8" not the 10") but I'm struggling to decide what accessories and equipment i want with it. theres a separate discussion thread where i decided on a dob, ill leave the link if anybody wants to read that. i guess ill just leave it open-ended and ask if theres any one particular way to set up this dob that is the best way, or does it depend on what i want to use it for? i assume, of course, that at least part of it will depend on my preferences. i want to do lots of DSO viewing and maybe eventually some DSO imaging, but this scope doesn't need to be a good astrophotography scope necessarily. by the time i have the money for imaging i will probably have bought a scope better designed for imaging anyway. aside from that, i really want lots of good views of DSOs and maybe planetary to, but i have a pretty good mak that i use for planetary and lunar so that isn't a strict requirement. aside from that, my budget is $600, but i can go a little past it if i need to. i have had a bunch of different threads asking for help picking telescopes the past few days, i hope its not getting annoying. but somebody as new to astronomy as i am needs as much help as they can get, so I'm glad to have help so readily available.
Hi All, New to the forum and in astronomy. I got my first telescope about 6 months ago along with a set of eyepieces one of which is the Omegon SWA 32mm (http://www.omegon.eu/omegon-swa-32mm-2r-eyepiece/p,14646) Due to my inexperience and an unfortunate series of events I managed one night to actually unscrew the cap that was holding all the lenses in place and as a result they came out ... Now this happened while observing (!) so I didn't note the order unfortunately ... I have put it back together in what I think is the proper order but the view is now distorted at the edges ... I tried to contact Omegon to provide me with the order of the lenses but they said this is not something they can do. I was wondering if someone that does have this eyepiece and has taken it apart (for cleaning maybe?) could tell me what I am doing wrong ... The attached image shows the current arrangement, with the observer being on the left side and the blue rectangles being the metallic divisions. Thanks in advance for any help!
