Practice focusing during the Day Time on a distant object-- use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it and do NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one-- just the eyepiece.Turn the focus knob until the distant object comes into focus. Objects in the night sky are TINY and your scope must be pointed right at them-- the moon which is a large target should be your first night time object.www.telescopeman.orgwww.telescopeman.uswww.telescopeman.info Read More At : Carson 40100x60mm SkyWatcher Telescope...

I am a beginner looking for a good telescope. I am currently looking at a Celestron Skywatcher telescope. There are three lenses which comes with it: super wide 10mm. lens as well as a wide angle 25 mm. long eye relief lens,and a barlow lens.
My question to you is, is this a good telescope for viewing objects
in the sky, such as mars, moon, jupiter etc. Or do I need another lens stronger then that.
I would like you to also give me an answer as soon as possible
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

any information would be great if you have it on how is best to set up
This is a reflector telescope on an equatorial mount. Really NOT what we recommend for beginners. The mount must be polar aligned in order to be used.Read this:http://www.optcorp.com/product.aspx?pid=3050Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.Read my tips on my profile page especially the one about Equatorial Mounts.

Hi! For Christmas (2010) I received a skywatcher telescope SK1141 EQ1 (D=114mm F=1000mm). I would like to be able to view the solar eclipse which is due to take place on the 3rd/4th January. I was wondering if it is possible to back project from this telescope and if so how should I go about it? If not, do I need to purchase a solar filter and how much will this cost? I would appreciate it if you get back to me asap. Thanks for you time.
Theoretically you can use eyepiece projection for solar images, by placing a screen opposite the eyepiece and focusing on it. Some telescopes come with an accessory attachment for this. However, there is the possibility that the eyepiece will be damaged by the heat, especially if it is one with cemented elements or if it has plastic parts.Do NOT buy or attempt to use a solar filter to look at the Sun. If the filter cracks from the heat you will instantly lose your sight. I'm not sure that I would bother with a telescope during an eclipse. You may not even be able to get it lined up and focussed in the short time available. At the last eclipse, I made a pinhole camera with a pinhole in a piece of foil placed in a blacked out window in a darkened room. The image on the hand held paper screen was good enough to photograph. Read More At : Optics...
