HI, recently purchased the Nextstar 8i. Everything is pretty decent except that I struggle to properly see the rings of saturn , or any detail for Mars for that matter, but my main gripe is that whilst I can find all the stars after 2 star alignment, it fails to find the planets.

My other concern is that eventhough we are residing in a pretty remote area and the stars are exceptionally bright here, I still cant get great detail of Saturn and Mars.

Any help appreciated.

PS I have an OMNI 4mm eyepiece and a E-Lux 6,10 and 25mm eyepiece.

thanks
