Please do not buy any telescope that lists the magnification on the outside of the box or in the advertising. These are toy scopes. Magnification is the least important factor in a telescope.

Look around this web site for a good beginners telescope.

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 to use my telescope to stare better at moon, venus ...etc


1. Download stellarium at stellarium.org (free) This will tell you where to find the planets.
2. Do not use the erect image eyepiece for astronomy, It is for terrestrial viewing only.
3. Buy a moon filter. They are inexpensive ($12 at Agena Astro and others)
4. Huygens (H20, H12.5) are VERY cheap eyepieces,They have narrow field of view and low contrast. Purchase a good plossl or better eyepiece, you will really see the difference.
5. The SR4 (symmetrical Ramsden) is another cheap eyepiece. Avoid eyepiece designs that were invented in the 1700s. See item 4 above.

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.

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!

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

See this page.

Aperture- 60 mm

Focal Length- 800mm

This is a very small aperture similar to a pair of 10x50mm binoculars.
