First post - I'm aware this is a question asked a lot, but after a lot of post reading and over saturation of information I've decided asking the question myself to you guys is the only solution!
I've just become an owner of the Heritage 130p, just wondering whether a decent eyepiece set is realistic?
My budget is in the £40-£70 range, aware this might only achieve one eyepiece?
I've not picked an area of interest yet although I would love to hunt out DSOs.
I'm in NE London so light pollution is a big factor.
Hi, I know that there has been a couple of threads on how to collimate a newtonian, more specific, how to center the secondary mirror under the focuser.
I bought mine "Concenter eyepiece" for almost a year ago and can't praise it enough - it makes centering the secondary a breeze.
Have anyone else tried this? What is your opinion?
I have also read that some have questions of how accurate it is? - I might not know the answer to this question, but what I do know is that after I have been centering the secondary with the Concenter eyepiece, I finish of the collimation with the Catseye XLKP and Blackcat. The small adjustments I have to make of the secondary after adjusting it with the Concenter eyepiece tells me it is very accurate. It is just the absolute finest adjustments i have to make afterwards.
I have made a video of how it works and how it looks like when I am collimating my scope. (10" f3,4 astrograph)
Best regards, Daniel
In market for a good quality, reasonably priced long focal length 1.25 eyepiece to increase fov and help locate and view large objects. Celestron makes a 32mm for @$45.00. Is it any good? Price seems too good to be true. What are good quality/price options?
Hi, i have made a video where i show a coople of eyepieces that i use and like, and also show how a barlow works, compared to the "Powermate" from Televue. And how is the FOV affected when changing the magnification with different eyepieces?
Feel free to comment and give me feedback - I hope you like the video!
Gt my telescope based on recommendations here years ago. Its getting dusty though.
Really just want to see as many planets in solar system as possible please. I read plenty but its too much to remember sorry. Struggled just looking at the moon
Most things said barlows are a stepping stone.
Can someone point out an eye piece on first light optics or something similar in UK please. Its for me and my 6 year old space obsessed son.
Also a polarising filter if there worth it. Is a collimater cap as easy as a laser? I wont get round to making one so ill buy.
Last step would then be plumbers tape on the eyepiece threads right?
