My first telescope and I am not having a good time. I plunged for the evostar 72ED as a good starter telescope for astrophotography and for the price the optics are said to be very good. My first shock was that there was no eyepiece, I ordered one from amazon a svbony 2inch 26 mm :
I assumed all EPs such as the one above would be compatible for all refractor telescopes, after many days of England under the cover of grey clouds the skies opened up for 2 hours today and I rushed out for my first light and hmm could not get focus on the eye piece.
I tried everything and am left frustrated - that yet again I seemed to have made a mistake of some sort but not sure what! hence why I am here.
I would be grateful if someone can point me in the right direction regarding what I have done wrong?
this was the setup:
(Telescope) + (EP 26mm) = no focus no matter where the focusing tube was.
Thank you for your help.
