Is there a month with with two full moons


Moon cycle is about 28 1/2 days, so every so often there is a month with two full moons. This happens "once in a blue moon". Hence the expression

Name the moons of neptune


On July 15, a 14th moon of Neptune, provisionally called S/2004 N 1, was announced.
Outwards from Neptune, the inner moons are Naiad, Thalassa, Despina, Galatea, Larissa, S/2004 N 1 and Proteus.Next outward from Neptune, Triton is one of four moons in the solar system known to have an atmosphere. The thin nitrogen haze is thought to have evaporated off of the frozen surface.After Triton comes Nereid. Much further out than Nereid orbit five outer moons, Halimede, Sao, Laomedeia, Neso and Psmathe.

How do you install telescope?


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

How can i see the moon with a bushnell 430


You have to fit a 90% lunar filter to the end of the eyepiece where it fits into the scope, like this one

Cant see anything through the view finder


1. During the day, use the 17mm eyepiece on a object outside (telephone pole, water tower, etc) then align the finder to what you see in the scope.
2. Put in the 7.5mm eyepiece and fine align the red dot finder.
3. At night, point the finder at the moon (less than half moon or the image is too bright without a moon filter) Use the 17mm eyepiece.
4. Once you see the moon, switch to the 7.5mm lens and enjoy.
5. Download Stellarium or any free astronomy software and see what is in your sky tonight. Your scope should be able to see Jupiter and its moons easily.(Saturn, Mars and Venus when the time is right) Open clusters like Pleiades will be nice is this fast scope.
5. If stars are not sharp, you may need to collimate the scope. Look online for general instructions.

Purchased a tasco 675 luminova telescope and the front lens was missing. Where can i get one from?


I assume you mean the eyepiece. This telescope uses 1.25 inch eyepieces. Maximum magnification is 400x on a perfect seeing night.
I would start with a 20mm plossl which would give you 33x. Enough to see the moon and Jupiter/Saturn. If you get interested, then buy more eyepieces and most important a moon (neutral density) filter.
telescope focal length (675)/ eyepiece focal length = magnification
Good places for eyepieces are Ebay, Astronomics, Smart Astronomy

Eyepieces lost


You did not mention your telescope make and model so:
1. measure eyepiece holder. Determine of you use .965in. or 1.25in. diameter eyepieces. If you use .965 eyepieces you are limited in choices. HANDSONOPTICS.COM carries nice Plossls. SURPLUSSHED.COM. sells .965 moon filters and cheaper eyepieces. If you have a 1.25 eyepiece holder, the skies the limit on eyepieces. Check Ebay plus other sites.
2. Determine the focal length of the eyepiece you want to use. As a rule, your scope can magnify 50x per inch of aperture although looking at just the moon, you can stretch that a bit. For example, a 80mm reflector (3.1 in). x 50 = 155x max. magnification (must be a perfectly clear night)
So now find the focal length of the scope (stamped/labeled somewhere) Typical refractor is 700mm. For maximum power (155x) it is: focal length of telescope/focal length of eyepiece = magnification. Or FL (scope)/ magification= FL eyepiece. 700/155= 4.5mm. This size will have terrible eye relief unless you spend $$$$$. Suggest a 10mm eyepiece which gives 70x power and a great view of the moon and planets
