Good evening and hope to learn from you all !


Recommended Posts

I have always been interested in the stars, planets and anythying outside of the earths grip. I have over the past few months looking to the skies (thanks to an APP on my iPhone) for the ISS and always think what if I had a decent telescope.

Again the moon would look amazing, and even planets I've not looked at.

Recently bought a Bresser Skylux NG 70-700 refractor telescope but it had the eye piece lens tube thing missing and so rendered usless.

First of all any help welcomed in to what I need to buy and where can I get one and secondly once up and running I'm sure a good read of past posts will keep me in check before posting the usual questions.

Many thanks in advance

Andy

Best guess from what you say is that you are missing a diagonal.

Equipment should be:
Scope, Focuser (screwed onto the scope), diagonal (allows you to look down an "into" the scope) and an eyepiece.

If so then you need a diagonal.

Get a cheap one from somewhere like Rother Valley Optics or Green Witch(Leeds)

RVO have them (2 different ones) at £25.

Sky the Limit have one at £15 - may as well get that one, Alan is good at StL.

If it is not that bit ask again.

Just check that the holes and eyepiece are all 1.25", don't think they will be anything else but just check things.
