Subject: ETX 90 Premier Edition Sent: Monday, August 6, 2007 21:53:02 From: Patrick Rodriquez (firstname.lastname@example.org) I am a beginner and there is much I need to learn. I set up the telescope and so far my viewing has been no better then using a pair of binoculars. I have a 26 mm, 32 mm, 12.4 mm and a 6.4 mm lens. I just cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. Do you have any tips. Thanks PatrickMike here: What objects have you been looking at? Remember that stars won't magnify so they will appear as pinpoints of light just like when looking at them with binoculars. But the Moon, some planets, and many deep sky objects should be nicely viewed with the ETX-90. Keep in mind that many deep sky objects will appear as "faint fuzzy objects" to your eye. For more on what you can see with the ETX-90, see my ETX-90 reports on the Helpful Information: Buyer/New User Tips page as well as reports from other users on the Helpful Information: User Observations page.
Thank you Mile. I have been trying to view stars. I really do have a lot to learn. Thank you for being there to help out... I will go and check out the site. The moon it is until I learn more. Patrick
