Hi all,previously owned cheapo bins,then bought a Celestron 130 which I still can't get the hang of (not bought any extra lenses or know how to set it up,lol).recently I bought a pair of Celestron 20x80 bins and has renewed my interest in  the skies.

Welcome.  I've not been here long but have found SGL to be a wonderful community - everyone has been extremely helpful and none of the stupidity and nastiness that is rife in other places.

Hi Uker and welcome to SGL, with setting up your scope I would refer you the " themcdonalds.net " web site, where there is a wealth of information, set out under various headings, which should be of help to you. If you are still bothered by any particular problem, then ask in the forum under the particular section to which your question refers, enjoy the forum :)
