Greetings one and all,
Started to use new to me Meade ETX 105 scope. This is my first scope ever. Question on the power of the 26mm EP that came with the unit. Focal length of the OTA is 1470mm/26mm=56.5?
Last night had short window to try out the unit,was viewing Sirius all came in clear. Would what I saw be about the same as when I view through 10x50 Binos other then field of view? Does that sound right to everyone.
Buy adding a 2x Barlow to the EP that would give me more power 113=larger image of Sirius or other stars?
My other question pertains to the electric focuser that came with the unit but no installed yet. Are there any pluses or minus to using it?
As always thanks for the help
