Hi all. I just bought a Celestron 8 inch SCT on a German equatorial mount. Anyway, I can't see objects clearly with a 5 mm Celestron Ultima eyepiece. Everything is so fuzzy that it is worthless. The question is:are there anything wrong with the optics of my telescope? I look at leaves on the tree in the day time and can't clearly see using that 5mm eyepiece. I looked at Mars and saw a fuzzy ball-no details. I looked at the star using the 12.5 mm and 25 mm eyepiece and see no airy disk and surrounding rings. What is wrong?? Please give me any suggestions or answer. Thanks for your help.
