a nexstar 8
a 12.5mm (1.25)
a 32mm (1.25 GSO Plossl).
a need for magnification beyond the 12.5mm
Used the telescope three times.
Once with the 12.5 (Found the moon), but could not find the stars.
Ordered the 32mm, found Saturn, Jupiter and quite a few stars, magnified the planets to 160 times, (using the 12.5mm).
Sharp, Great definition of rings.. 160X is still small, did not see the moons circling either planet..
I am thinking I need an 8mm (But need advice before I order).
Was also thinking of a midrange 18mm (But, probably will always start with the 32mm then jump to 12.5, therefore this may very well be a waste).
Would I be better served with a 7mm?
How about a 6mm?
Yes, it is all about Saturn right now, and perhaps a crater or two on the moon.
Just starting out, vintage N8, but it works like a charm. (Circa 2002)
(Also, just got the star pointer and it really does work well)
