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.
Good morning (well at least here in TX) all. I will try and keep this brief. My son and I are looking to upgrade from a cheap newtonian. I have been reading until my eyes bleed as to hopefully not come off as a complete noob but as an active member of other enthusiast groups I find it can be a better use of time to ask those who have "been there and done that". I am considering this listing and have verified it is at least still available. The owner has owned it for 12 years and its a basic GOTO not GPS. Also appears to be a GEQ (I think) which is good as I would like to dabble in photography as well. Given the age of the thing but also considering the additional equipment is this a fair deal or is he asking too much? Thanks again, I appreciate any and all input!
