  1. Hi Freesaxon,

    I joined this forum just a few days ago. For the best advice and help with any aspect of astronomy, I don't think you need to look any further

    The members here are unbelievably helpful. I've learned so much just by looking round the threads already available

    You won't be sorry you joined SGL

    Hope you find all the help you need in this wonderful passtime


  2. Hello all,

    I've been lurking around the forum since 'googling' for advice on a choice of telescope a few days ago. I'm very pleased to have found you all and the advice available here is so helpful

    I've been very much into astronomy for the last 30 years and studied physics, earth sciences and such with the Open University. Strangely, I've never owned a telescope and although I just love the night sky I couldn't tell Leo from the Big Dipper until a couple of years ago!

    My father in law gave me a pair of old bino's a few months back. He'd been using them for bird watching but I decided to turn them to the sky and my passion for the heavens was re awakened more than I could have imagined

    I decided I wanted to see Andromeda and hey . . . I found it! strange how a tiny smudgy patch of fuzzy white(ish) sky can make the heart race!

    Anyway, I'm going to learn a lot more and pick up my reading from years ago. I think my first astronomical purchase will be a better pair of bino's because I just get the feeling that no matter how big a telescope I eventually end up with I'll go back to the bino's often and get a lot of use from them

    Anyone any thoughts on this?

    Thank you all so much for sharing your knowledge and experience here with beginners like me, it's very much appreciated
