I have a Celestron NexStar 114 GT; however, for this question I do not think that really matters. After I correctly aligned(I know because Saturn was placed in the field of view) the scope, I focused in on Jupiter. I saw the planet and its 4 moons. But, everytime I used a lower mm(from a start at 25 down to a 4mm), the size of Jupiter remained the same. Is that SUPPOSED to happen? Or is something screwy? THanks!
