When I took it out last night, I made sure it was collimated, I left it out to acclimate to the temperature, but even with the 2x barlow lens, the stars seemed to be just as much pinpoints as they are to my regular vision. To be fair, my sight was not properly secured and aligned so I might not have been looking at my target(Jupiter). It was also not straight up in the sky, so there is light pollution.
Any tips on how to get the images of the planets I’ve seen taken with this reflector? Many of the videos I see talk about how to put the telescope together, and alignment but not on tips of how to make proper use of this massive telescope and the many lenses. Would go a long way towards proving to my mum that the planets exist.
