Hello! I was out last night trying to use my neighbor's telescope to observe Mars, but couldn't see anything whatsoever! I've never used a telescope so I know absolutely nothing and the manual was no help. There's absolutely no light coming through the telescope, is the aperture closed? This model is a Bausch and Lomb 4000, a Schmidt-Cassegrain; does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? If you have an idea, please e-mail me or instant message me. Thank you very much!
