Hello, I am Sebastian. I am new to astronomy and telescopes.
-The site that I bought the telescope from : https://astromagazin.ro (The site is in romanian, not in english)
-Link to the telescope on AstroMagazin.ro : https://astromagazin...31200-dob-.html
-Official Omegon site : https://www.omegon.eu/
-Link to the telescope on Omegon.eu : https://www.omegon.e...ab_bar_0_select
-I bought it from AstroMagazin because the transport was way cheaper.
-I took the telescope and eyepiece covers/caps off.
So I bought my telescope a couple months ago and I waited some time, until the sky was clear (it wasn't clear when the telescope came).
One day, the sky was clear and I decided to test my scope. I expected having a hard time figuring out how to use it, I was right, I had some problems but I figured it out, I decided to go to sleep.
Next day, clear sky, I tried it again, everything was set up, I pointed it at a star (it was in the shape of a donut) and I tried focusing. I tried doing it fast, going back and forth. But I realized I was doing it wrong, and I started doing it slower and slower. (and it still looked like a donut)
Well, I have been trying for a long time, so I stopped and went to sleep.
(Another day)I kept trying for a bit, but it didn't work. I thought that my telescope wasn't collimated, so I watched some tutorials on how to collimate your telescope, but I failed collimating it.
Again, I tried it for some days, but it didn't work, so I decided to buy a cheshire eyepiece and a laser collimator (I heard people saying that they are using both).
The same happened and I didn't know what to do.
Some time ago I decided to go and look at something that is really far away, but it is on the ground (I know a reflector inverts the image). I saw the objects, I did this as a little test. But when I tried looking at a star, it was still a donut.
In my opinion, I just don't know how to collimate the telescope, but maybe it's not that.
I hope you can help me!
