Still no sign of the balloon holding it up there, and it's still right in the orbit that it's supposed to be in. Damn strange.

I have to say the lx series is a very good scope. I inherited an older ETX 105 from my father and love it. I was wondering what finder scope you use, as i am ready to toss the crappy one that came with the telescope back then.

1. Telescopes cannot and do not zoom as far as we think they zoom

2. The stars / what we are observing aren’t as far as we think they are

Our eyes surely cannot see as far as you think. For example, the sun is not 93 million miles away. Not even 1
Million mile away

You think your eyes can see things 1 million miles away?

ISS has precisely the angular size it should for an object 109 meters wide at about 400 km altitude. I've measured it myself. And no, the distance analogy is not bullshit, it SHOULD move at an angular rate of about 1 degree per second when viewed from 400 km away, that's well within my telescope's capabilities.

That isn't research. That's just parroting a youtube video. What I did is actual research, actual measurements I made myself with my own equipment.

ISS is real, it's exactly as large, as fast and as far away as NASA states. I've measured it myself and my videos are not a hoax. Anyone can replicate my results for themselves. If you're unwilling to repeat my experiment for yourself then you aren't doing research and you can shut the fuck up.

I use a finder camera for this work, not a finder scope. It's just a modified Samsung SDC-435 security camera with a 55mm lens. It provides the guiding video for high magnification satellite tracking like this.

 Quoting: Astromut


If you take your telescope and zoom into the mountains and see how much detail you see then zoom at the moon , without changing any optics settings , you’re telling me your telescope is zooming 250,000miles and focusing on the moon, while simultaneously semi focusing on some rocks in the distance somewhere ?

What is the optical zoom ultimately you use to zoom, I know Nikon p1000 is trash tier compared to your setup , but in terms of focal length of the focus of an optics has an actual DISTANCE from the camera to said object

It’s impossible for the moon to be 250,00 miles away when looking at the hard physical focal length it’s focuses on land then keeping same optics/zoom , focus on the moon and the moon is focus with the same focal length of the focus on earth such as land in the distance ?

Want to talk about logical fallacy? Appeal to authority appeal to NASA harder —

Also I’m not a flat earther if it helps, the stars in reality spin COMPLETELY reverse northern and southern altitude — flat earth azimuthal equidistant projection of stars has the stars spinning concentrically around North Pole, they say the stars reflect off the “dome” and spin reverse with no proof short of a video of a lighter reflecting off a kitchen metal pan

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77798472

Are you trying to poorly describe the concept of hyperfocal distance?
H = f^2/(N*c) + f
f = focal length
N = f ratio
c = circle of confusion limit
Let's set c equal to the pixel spacing of my Canon T5i camera when recording video at 1080p, which is 0.012 mm on the sensor. The hyperfocal distance for a telescope like mine which has an f ratio of f/10 and a focal length of 2000 mm is therefore about 33 km or about 20 miles. Anything beyond that distance will be at the same focus point to my telescope. This is one reason why when I shoot launches from about a dozen miles from the launch pad I generally have to slightly tweak the focus in-flight. Alternatively, I can focus on a much more distant object like the moon and tolerate some fuzziness of the rocket when it's on the pad but have it come into sharper focus as it rises.
It’s impossible for the moon to be 250,00 miles away when looking at the hard physical focal length it’s focuses on land then keeping same optics/zoom
 Quoting: Idiot

I don't think you even understand how I focus on anything with my telescope. The only time I focus on anything on the ground is when I'm filming a rocket launch.
Want to talk about logical fallacy? Appeal to authority appeal to NASA harder —

I'm not appealing to NASA. Just because my results agree with NASA does not mean I'm appealing to NASA. I'm presenting my own data, not NASA's.
