    Hello all.....

    Hi Frooby I do actually live in Hull ( Red & White side ) we should meet up for coffee one day as we have a lot in common.
  15. I know from a few posts already received that a phone call to FLO is in order on Tuesday or if anyone from that store comes on here a PM would be nice. However before I do that I need my appetite wetting and just wondered what members thoughts would be on the type of set might be best for me ( don't worry I won't hold anyone ) . I would like to use my camera so one suited to camera adaption is needed. I've been to told to stay clear of " Go to" models ? And I have a budget of around £600 approx. The other very confusing issue is Reflector or Refractor ? I wait in anticipation your replies Richard
  16. Thanks Ant, you all seem like a helpful bunch and look forward to posting my Progresss
  17. Thanks Neil I would like t o look and photograph the moon and also the space station. The space station is orbiting over us at the moment and I don't know how longer longer it will maintain it's current orbit . So a telescope to look at both are my requirements

    Hello all.....

    I'd like to introduce myself , I'm Richard and live in East Yorkshire Nr Hull. I'm 49 and a self employed Architect . I've have a passion for astronomy gained from my late father and only now have decided to carry on the mantle. I have posted a few questions in the beginners forum for some help please. Regards Richard
  19. Hi guys finally registered and champing at the bit. I'm about to take up this hobby after 40 years . My father was a keen amateur astronomer and just before he died a couple of years ago bought me an Omega Speedmaster Moon watch ( I'm a watch collector ) and his old telescope but unfortunately was beyond repair. So I'm wishing to purchase a telescope to use with my digital SLR camera ( I'm I being to ambitious? ) I've been to my local camera shop and he was clueless giving me a an Optical Vision catalogue and now I'm even more confused. My budget is approx £600 can someone please point me in the right direction. Also is there a local club in the Hull area ? Regards Richard
