If anybody could offer their opinion I would be pleased. I am very new at this.
I have seen that you can purchase a variable zoom eyepiece. They seem to have range from about 8mm to 24mm. Are these any good. I suspect their may be a trade off in quality but if they are reasonably good I think it would be very useful. I do realise I may need to pop a fixed one in to get the best view but their does seem to be a lot of searching before settling on final subject. A zoom would seem to make that easier, well hopefully!
I have Startravel 102 SynScan AZ GOTO 102mm Refractor. I am not sure how good the eyepieces that come with it are but they are 10mm and 22mm.
Although I have managed to see moons of Jupiter and Saturns rings I did think the quality would have been better.
I never noticed how many people have security lights. I think my neighbour must have a 1500w lamp in his that seems to be aimed at my back garden.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. I am happy to spend money if it will improve things.
