Question about Celestron AstroMaster 114 AZ (50 x 114mm) Telescope
When i zoom closer to the likes of the moon or venus (or any star come to think of it) i see my circular mount from my mirror in the centre of the image! looking towards closer objects (ie land) my zoom works perfectly! is there something i'm not doing (or not set up)? any serious suggestions on solutions, I would be very grateful for!
Most telescopes do not have a zoom-- they have different numbered eyepieces that give different magnification-- you can buy a zoom eyepiece however.
From what you describe -- put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope-- this is the LOWEST magnification. Now focus on the moon and or a distant land object during the day-- once it's in focus -- nice and sharp-- replace the eyepiece with the next LOWER number-- for more magnification. AND-- refocus the telescope for that eyepiece.
