Celestron 130 slt

So I read the reviews and bought a Celestron 130 SLT.

A couple of questions:

1. When using the eyepieces, I am getting frustrated. I find that if I am 1mm too close to the eyepiece, I can see nothing, if I am 1mm too far away I can just see black. I have to maneuver my head into exactly the right place to see what I am looking at, it is very annoying. Are ...

Amateur Reflector Scope??

As an amateur teenage astronomer I am interested in buying a reflector as a second telescope with a budget of around £300.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
J. ...

When I look at anything through the scope I can still see the CROSSHAIRS of the scope.
I have read many articles and watched many videos about this problem but I STILL have the ...

Atlas and Hercules

A waning gibbous moon was still pretty bright at around 11pm on the 18th Oct. Those 2 strongmen, Altas and Hercules, or at least their craters on the moon, were very prominent on the top right hand side of the moon. A favourable libration, or 'tipping' of the moon on that side showed them more 'face-on' than usual.
Along with the small crater inside Hercules, a closer look revealled the usual crater in Hercules' ...

suitable laptop for astrophotography

Hi all, my current laptop is on its way out and I am looking to purchase a new one. My budget isn't great, as far as laptops go (£350), but I was wondering if there are any specific specifications I should be looking for. I have been looking at a couple of Lenovo's on Amazon which has a vast price range. Any hints/tips on what I should be looking for to steer me in the ...
