hello, so I am sorta new to astronomy. I know a couple things about telescopes but not much.
My main question was: What can I see with a 70mm telescope?
my telescope is the celestron astromaster 70eq.
if you are not sure what telescope that is I’ll put the specifics right here
its aperture is 70mm
its focal length is 900mm
its focal ratio is f/13
it is a refractor telescope
it comes with two eyepieces: a 10mm and a 20mm
the 10mm has a magnification of 90x while the 20mm has a magnification of 45x
it has a red dot finderscope
it has an equatorial mount
the highest useful magnification is 165x
and lowest useful magnification is 10x
i was just wondering what we’re the objects I could get a good look at.
my main interest would be the moon, planets, and some nebula.
i was planning to get the celestron astromaster accessory kit as well.
I’m not sure if it’s necessary or not though, you tell me, I’m just a beginner.
the kit comes with a 2x Barlow, a 6mm plossl, a 15mm kellner, and three filters: a red, a blue, and a moon filter. I was thinking these things would enhance my viewing. After all it’s only 60 bucks.
i hope I can become a better astronomer like you guys one day, but for now I’m just gonna listen to your advice. Thanks for the help.
