You've got to learn your way around the sky. Get a book called Turn Left at Orion and spend time learning waypoints and how to locate things in the sky. It will make your time with tele lenses and telescopes much more enjoyable.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

ya just have to get to know the sky.
Put the telescope away and just use eyes with occasional binocular help
