So I have had my scope for a month now and have had only about 2 hours with it in the dark pointing upward.
And again this evening another damp rotten evening, so it looks like it's back to the books for another read on Astronomy for the newbie, me, I have purchased 6 in last 4 weeks and have read about 3, so still a few more pages to plough through, it would seem that clear skies are a rareity in my part of the woods, damn this weather, however it has given me time to think about how I can disable the really bright street light at the bottom of my garden, one of 4 within 50 yards of each other, they like their lights around here.
Which had me thinking, is there a website that has viewing sites around the country where I can go set up my scope without street lights everywhere? are there any other astronomers in my area that know of such sites? Should I create a website just for the purpose of passing on this information? Or am I just bored looking out of of a rain splattered window hoping for the rain and clouds to go?
I will now go and watch my recordings of the Prof Brian Cox expaining about the Sun, Earth and all the other interesting things in The Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe, who knows I amy actually remember something he says this time.
