Hi, my current telescope is Celestron ExploraScope 70AZ, thinking upgrade to skywatcher heritage 130P(came with 25mm ajd 10mm EP) ,  if i do, can i use the eyepiece (4mm) and x3 barlow from my old celestron on the 130P?

One more question, i ordered a eyepiece camera Svbony SV105, i wonder what is magnification of this camera and how it work to change magnification.

As long as the eyepiece (4mm) and x3 barlow are 1.25" then "yes it will" - but it will be too much magnification with the 4mm e/p' & barlow combined. With the 10mm & barlow combined; it maybe doable. The higher the magnification, you start loose contrast and the finer details of the object you are viewing when focussed, which you is what you do not need. Aperture of the 'scope is king; not the focal length of the eyepiece.  As a guide, 50x per inch/25mm of aperture of the 'scope is normally the sweet-spot.

Not sure about the camera though... sorry! - most budget astro-cameras are equal to what you will see when viewing through the 'scope with your eyes and a 6mm e/p.

The term "magnification" doesn't apply to imaging. You can find the field of view of the telescope/camera combination by using this field of view calculator. You will need to find out the dimensions of the sensor and pixel size for your camera because it isn't listed.

The specifications from Amazon

Specification
Sensor:1/3" CMOS OV2710
Pixel size:3μm
Resolution:2 mega pixels 1920x1080

i just contact the manufacturer, they told me this eyepiece camera is equivalent to 4mm EP

Stay safe! 😷

i quite worry, because my frend uses a EP from other telescope and the focuser could not focus the object.

Below is the results of the field of view calculator. The red rectangle is the field of view of the camera and the yellow circle the same for a 4mm uwa eyepiece. An eyepiece with a narrower field of view will have a smaller circle.

      Hi all, 
      Just a quick question saw a previous post on here for the x-cel eye pieces vs the BST Starguiders was looking at getting a 25 mm and a 10-12mm but would any one reccomend a zoom lens 8-24mm are these any good? If so any particular make I should go for instead of the starguiders or should I just stick to my original plan of getting 2 starguider eyepieces 
      Thanks all

      I recently bought a 6 inch reflector, 750mm focal length and i want to get a barlow lens to get better observations. I have 2 eyepieces, one 9mm and one 25mm. My question is should i go for a 2x barlow with the 9mm eyepiece(about 160x magnification) or 3x with the 9mm(about 250x magnification)? I know that a 6inch can handle about 300x. Is the 2x barlow enough or should i get a 3x?

      So, I have been testing three different kind of lasers, each one is supposed to be the "best" in each category or what you want to call it, the hotech and HG is almost the same, but whit the difference in how you lock it down.
      The Catseye is very different in how it works.

      I made a Youtube video of my thoughts

      What do you think? which one do you use?

      Regards, Daniel

      I recently decided to give the SynScan app a try on my new Orion XT10g.
      Now using the hand controller I was familiar with the "Brightest Star" and "Two-Star" alignments methods, indeed I always use the Two-Star method.
      With the app however I see that the Two-Star has been replaced with the level north two star.   What is that?  And since there's no manual for the app, what precisely does level north mean?  I'm guessing that you level the OTA and point north but with what precision?  Any idea why that replaces the Two-Star method from the hand controller?
      OK, so fine.  I did the Level North alignment.  I noticed that as it goes to each of the two stars and stops, while waiting for you to center the star, a couple of the directional buttons are flashing.  What's interesting is that the ones flashing are not the ones for the direction that the scope needs to move to center the star.  Again, what's up with this?
      Finally, after aligning and doing a Goto (reasonably accurate), once it arrives at the target again, one of the directional buttons is flashing and there's a message above the object name that says that I'm to center it.   Huh?  
      Can someone help me make sense of all this.  And, is there a manual for this app ??
      Thanks.

      Hi guys, firstly - sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. 
      I've just ordered a Canon 600D to start doing some astrophotography and it arrives tomorrow - I'm stoked. I've been wanting to get into astrophotography for a while now and I'm so happy to finally be pulling the trigger.
      The last item on my shopping list is a solid beginner telescope which would couple well with my Canon 600D. The research I've done is all pointing towards a newtonian reflector.
      My primary goal here is to take some pictures of stars and planets with the Canon 600D attached to the telescope. I've been looking at the Sky-Watcher 114/900 as it's relatively cheap, which I think is great for someone just starting off - but was wondering what your opinions were seeing as you've all been through this before. Do you have any other recommendations? I'd like to keep my budget up to £300, and that's stretching it really.
      Thanks for taking the time to help!
