The observing is done by pinpointing an sky object in the software planetarium and the telescope slewed to the selected object which is shown as a the blue cross button.The telescope is right on the object but I cannot see anything through my eyepiece.

Is there a nightly database of pictures of the night sky?

Is there a center for pictures captured by amateur astronomer or alike?
I am looking to see if there are any organizations that gather pictures of world-wide night sky.
I doubt it, but I must ask.

Which is the better 10 inch reflector

Greeting to all,

After some many years out of Astronomy i have decided to come back to the fold as it were, with this in mined i have but one question on the two 10 inch Dobsonian reflectors i have to choose from and they are the Bresser, or, the SkyWatcher Skyline 250 PX.

New scope opinions..

I'm an "old" newbie looking to buy a low price starter. I fell in love with a newton but after all I read about the adjustments and the frailty of the design, I've turned to shopping refractors. I've never even looked through a scope before besides my riflescopes and I want to be able to use the thing, not work on it! Ok, to the scope..a Celestron Powerseeker 80EQ. At $100, that's not much....Question is, ...

Travel scope: 70/500 vs 80/400 achromat? Travel scope: 70/500 vs 80/400 achromat?

I'm looking for a lightweight telescope under $300, capable of being transported in a backpack for hikes (along with its mount). For general purpose: I'll use it for both astronomy and terrestrial. I live in a white zone, so from home it'll be planets and the Moon, but from out of town I can hit some brighter DSOs too. I'd also like to take photos of birds and such, by attaching a DSLR. I realise ...

Telescope viewing

So I've recently bought a telescope and I was viewing Jupiter last and I could see it with 4 of its moon. But Jupiter itself just looked like a ball of light (a bit like the photo attacked below). I use a Nova 114mm x 500mm reflector telescope and a 10mm lens with a 2X barlow. Was just wondering if there is any way I can better my view of Jupiter and maybe start seeing ...
