Several recommendations-

1. Contact a local Astronomy club and attend their meetings.

2. Download a free monthly star chart from www.skymaps.com

3. Install the free planetarium software Stellarium-- www.stellarium.org

What IS Mercury Retrograde?


In horoscopes the planets move through the Zodiac. However due to the fact that some planets have different orbits, that in the sky they appear to move backwards. Which is what astrologies call retrograde motion. Of course the planet doesn't go backwards at all. However when calculating the birth chart or doing any astrological chart, any planet going backwards is noted. Astrologers attach great significance to a planet going backwards. Though not all do. For example as Mercury controls communication, it going backwards might interfere with that.

How do i use it..??? and how do i locate planets in the sky


Planets travel across the sky on the same "path" that the sun took during the day. This is called the ecliptic (path of the sun.

Jupiter is up after dark and is VERY bright -- point the telescope to the BRIGHTEST "star " in the sky after dark.

Is there an adapter available to attach my Nikon D40 to my Nikon RA11 spotting scope?


Sorry but your out of luck with that combination. Nikon only made SLR adapters for their Fieldscope line of spotters, none for the Sky and Earth series. The camera adapters are very proprietary so you won't be able to use another manufacturer's SLR adapter to solve this one.

The images of deep sky objects (such as M31 M8 ...) I get with my LXD75 (SN 8") are faint. The images of the solar system (Moon, Jupiter...) are decent. Should I proceed to a collimation ?


NO- the objects are much dimmer than the planets and your camera must take a LONGER exposure to get an image.

Collimation makes stars and planets "sharper" but NOT BRIGHTER.

Many deep sky objects require 10-15 minute exposures!

Konusmotor 500 (230 x 114mm) Telescope: i can not see the planets...


Your telescope must be pointed DIRECTLY at them. Right now Venus, Mars, and Saturn at up in the evening sky after dark. Download a free planetarium software and locate the planets in the sky.

www.stellarium.org is a free software program

I do not know how to use my Baytronix Astronomical Telescope... AT ALL, any help would be great! Thanks


should be a spotting telescope, a smaller lens that you use to spot what you want or at least a peep site to align it. Then you look inside the lens and see if what you pointed at is there. If not, you adjust the spotting scope until it does. Use the moon (careful on a night as tonight or the next few as the moon light at this stage is going to be very bright and can cause damage to the eye) so you see a close up distance relative at first. Then you can spot on just about any object up there and you'll be very close. The planets are a good object to begin with. www.skyandtelescope.com is a good site to start with and they have monthly magazine as well. Happy Gazing :)

Bought a Geovision Precision Optical Omega Reflector telescope with a manual from a garage sale, please help locate the instruction manual, or tell me how to get the view right side up.


The view through an astronomical telescope is always upside down. When your looking at stars and planets, it makes no difference. If you want terrestrial view, get spotting scope - that's not what reflectors are for. If you still insiste on view right side up, you'll have to buy and inverting eyepiece or adapter and probably spend more than you paid for the scope.
