The bright object in the sky at the moment is the planet Venus - even moderate binoculars should help here.

Where do i put the film on a telescope

Do you mean how do I take photos with a telescope?

1. For bright objects like the planets, or the moon you can use a cell phone camera. There is a telescope attachment available to mount the phone directly over the eyepiece.
2. For long term photos- the telescope MOUNT is more important than the telescope tube. It must be able to track the sky VERY accurately for up to 5 minutes.

For starting out stay with bright objects -- you can use any type of digital camera -- so experiment.

Dear sir,got a ng7ofs for xmas, have done everything that i red on the internet,left it outside in the garden all outside lights turned off,lovely starey sky,and still can see nothing.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime-- objects in the night sky are smaller than the tip of your finger held at arms length. The scope must be pointed directly at them or you will see nothing.

Your first target should be the moon.

Looking at a clear bright sky at night and we can't see a thing - it is at if lowest eyepiece - got it from sears Dec. 29th - it is the Bushnell 3" reflector telescope w/talking guide and tripod

Can you focus during the day time on a distant object. If you can nothing is wrong with the scope. Objects in the night sky are tiny, smaller than the tip of your finger held at arms length.

Practice focusing during the day time, and read my TIPS on my profile page.

When taking pictures there is a color displacement of some sort. Leaves like bright purples and pinks shadowing images.It is worse in lighted areas, the more sunlight/bulb light the worse the coloring...


The term for an out-of-focus purple "ghost" image on a photograph is "Purple Fringing."

This is fairly common in Digital Photography.

In order to minimize instances of purple fringing you may incorporate the following:
Avoid shooting with big aperture (Small /f number) in high contrast compositions.
Avoid overexposing highlights (e.g. bright sky behind dark objects).
Shoot with a UV/Skylight Filter or a Circular Polarizing Filter. These protect the lens and also help to Get bluer skies and cut glare off reflective objects.
You could also use Post-processing to remove purple fringing by scaling the fringed color channel. This can be done in an image editor like Photoshop.

These suggestions will help in minimizing the instances of color displacement for you.
I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

Sky objects are VERY small the scope must be pointed directly at them--- try for the moon first --- to learn how to focus properly. Just pointing it toward the sky will not do you any good.

How to use telescope at night?

Many people have the same problem-- with these small telescopes you are stuck with seeing only the moon, and several other planets, and maybe a few bright star clusters.

These are all TINY objects (except for the moon).... when you look through the telescope you are looking at a section of sky about the size of your fingertip held at arms length-- the scope must be pointed DIRECTLY at the object. Practice on the moon first-- and then try to find Saturn which is up in the sky right now-- it looks like a dim (slightly yellow) star.

Want to see images right side up

You do not need an erecting prism to view objects at night. These are used if you wish to view terrestrial objects since it turns them right side up.

If you have a reflecting telescope (it uses mirrors) it's normal to not use an erecting prism or as they are also known as star diagonals. Objects will appear inverted and that's normal. A refracting telescope (no mirrors, just lenses) will also invert the image but it is quite often used with a star diagonal to make it easier to view. There are many other types of telescopes that use a combination of mirrors and lenses.

I hope this helps.
