    Morning all, the telescope I bought is a Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ, I also bought a X2 Barlow lense, a kit containing a 9mm and a 15mm eyepiece, a moon filter, and a red 25 and a blue filter. I also bought a compass for alignment, a book of sky maps, a red torch and a smartphone mount for the eyepieces. So hopefully that's me set up for a bit of viewing for a while! I've been using a sky map app on my phone to find what I want and then aligning with the red dot finder, then fine adjustments to lock onto the object and its worked pretty well so far, but I'd like to learn more about reading the night sky with a book, as helpful and fun as the app is.
