    It seems that I am constantly coming up against ‘experts’ who treat beginners with disdain, rather than offer help. The video that S&T produced, as an addendum to an already excellent review on telescopes for beginners, is wonderfully unpretentious and just downright helpful. THANK YOU!

    I am such a rookie! I was given a nice (to me at least) telescope as a retirement gift…now if i could just figure out how to use it! I got it all assembled, and pointed in the right direction, but all I see is a white/grey light, and nothing i do seems to bring any clarity to the view finder. Maybe i am not using the correct eyepiece, but i do not know which one I should choose. Is their any hope for me out there?

    I am new to astronomy but for my 65th birthday my wife bought me a Celestron Nexstar 8 plus all of the accessories to go with it. I have free video capture programmes for my webcam, but would a purchased one be easier and more user friendly ?
    A great mag thank you.
    cheers david
