Issue with new Meade 102 StarNavigator

Morning all,

First off, hello - I'm a new poster, though I've been lurking here for a while.

Secondly - looking for a bit of advice...

I've been using a Sky Watcher EQ 150 for a couple of years now. It's a PITA to set up and use though as far as I'm concerned, and I've been looking to upgrade to something that'll give me the most out of my viewing time. I settled on ...

Eyepiece help

I have been researching on eyepieces for a day or two now and I can not come to a conclusion on what to get. I have an Orion space probe 130st. The focal length is 650mm and I am looking to view planets mostly Saturn as its the planet I took most interest in. If anyone has a good recommendation it would be great to hear it thank you.

Skywatcher 130 Motor Drive.

Hi everyone, I'm new here and I have a new telescope, the Skywatcher 130. I've just about worked out how to polar align it, at least through the guide scope. It has a basic motor drive attached, but according to the instructions, it says it will keep the scope steady 'If all 4 buttons are depressed'. The instructions are very basic and I think that's probably an error in translation? Surely I don't have to ...

First telescope question

I am looking for my first scope. So far I am deciding between the skywatcher 8 Dobsonian or the Celestron Omni XLT 127. I’m fairly certain at this point that I want to avoid the GOTO scopes as I can get more bang for my buck and learn the night sky better by avoiding GOTO. I also think that the search is half the fun. Any advice between these two or another scope suggestion is ...

Barlow Reflection

Here's a couple of shots of the Moon around Mare Imbrium I took the other night. One with just the camera (Sony Alpha 350) mounted on the telescope and one the same with a x2 Barlow lens. The Barlow shot has a wicked reflection diagonally across it. Is this just because the moon is bright or something else? Can anything be done to avoid it? It's even worse with a x3 Barlow.
