I have a meade 4440 4.5``newt. I use the coordinates to find objects but when I get there I can`t find what I am looking for. I am using a 25mm eyepiece and my other options are a 12.5mm, and a 4mm eyepiece. Also how do I differentate between stars and nebulae and galaxies? What is the greatest magnitude (brightness) my telescope can see?

Thanks.
