Hello everyone My name is Hayley. I'm a secondary school science teacher from the West Midlands in England. Although my degree was biology based, I have recently took the plunge and bought a Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ. I'm hoping to be able to see planets, nebulae, galaxies and so on. So far I've managed to see the moon in detail and Jupiter as a glowing disc. I have recently bought the AstroMaster accessory kit that came with a 2x Barlow lens, a 6 mm lens and a 15 mm lens, so I'm hoping to be able to see the bands on Jupiter and the Saturn's rings. I've been learning to read star charts and about magnification from this forum so I thought it was about time I introduced myself and said thank you! Does anyone have any tips/recommendations for an astronomy beginner for websites, apps, equipment, etc? Thank you in advance! Hayley
