Thanks Allan.

Will try to observer Orion with a 30mm eyepiece and come back with what I see.

Meanwhile, I watch Moon over the next coming days and also some planets if lucky.

As I understand it, Stars are only a single pixel of light even to the highest magnification of most telescopes.

Try focusing on a nebula like the Orion nebula.
Look for the sword of Orion (some people refer to it as the handle of the saucepan in Aust) and focus on the middle "star" which is really a bright nebula.

Use your 30mm eyepiece.

If you can aim your telescope manually at it, then adjust the finder to centre it in that. But be warned, it "moves" (or the Earth moves in reality) relatively quickly.

Hope this is of some help.
