Hello,
I am a new member, and I need a little guidance..?
I know everyone is busy, so perhaps someone could just direct me to a good website.
I have bought an old Astro Optics telescope, but I'm struggling to get a good image.
I think the lenses are ok, and may just be dirty..? Or it is put together incorrectly..?
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers,
Paul
PS. I will try to post a few photos of my telescope..?

Hello Paul Brunning and welcome !

This site (AstroMart) is known worldwide for the Classifieds, but has fallen into less than it was in the past for Forums.

You might have better response from the "Cloudy Nights" website forums. Just Google it.

Ed (aka eblanken) on both sites.

I can 2nd what Ed said.....while Astromart remains THE place to buy and sell when it comes to used gear, Cloudy Nights is THE place to get advice and help with very active forums.
