SkyTeCh05 Posted April 18, 2014 Share Posted April 18, 2014 Hi I am 13 and just started putting my interest into astrophysics or what ever you call them scientist who studie space with all types of telecopes (that would be me if I know the name...). I just got a nice telescope its a 127 EQ Celestron Power Seeker. Its a reflector and some kind of light and energy asorber. What I mean is that my telescope is pretty powerful for $450 and especially for my age. I never been in a forum so my word usage on the internet is bad sorry. Now my question is, how do I find polaris in the sky with my naked eye in real life? I live in Queen Creek, Arizona and I see this pot like shape but the handle is bent upwards. Once I find the big dipper I am suppose to go north. The moon constantly comes out at 8:00 PM to 7:00 AM (UTC time zone; Coordinated Universal Time). I don't even know what the big dipper nor little dipper would look like in the night sky-(real life...). Is there a way I can use the moon to track the big dipper down?
