scope question

Recommended Posts

hi my names mick and ive just joined the world of astronomy after several years of interest,ive been out and purchased a skywatcher 200p with an eq-5 mount,one question i have because the scope was bought second hand and only came with a dvd on how to build the scope and polar align it,on the end of the scope is a large plastic cover and on this cover is a small round cap,do i just take the small round cap off when im using the scope or the whole large cover on the end.

Hi Mick,

In normal use the whole cover is off so you get the benefit of the full aperture of the mirror.

Feel free to ask all the questions you want - it's not always obvious how the various functions of a scope work !.
