  4. This thread and the comments in it highlights one key thing to me... everybody is different! Like other interests of mine, Astronomy is a broad subject with many avenues to explore. Some want to observe while others I've spoken to are only interested in imaging. Some are intersted in the planets, others in the deep sky objects that look so unreal. Also, relatively speaking in these times of austerity, kit seems very affordable. A few years back you couldn't buy a sensible PC for less than £1,000. Now here we all are, many of us sharing our interest, no doubt mainly using kit that cost much less. I know people on other forums who spend a staggering amount on travel, photography, knives & watches. Good luck to them! If people have a long list of expensive, high end kit, then good luck to them! I hope they appreciate it and most importantly enjoy it. It doesn't imtimidate though it does cause a little envy Who cares what is in a signature? Read the posts that interest and follow your own path. Andy

    Hi all...

    Hi everyone Joined up on here a month back and thought it about time I said hello and started to actually post! Another newbie from Essex. I've had a passing interest in the stars for many years now, something reignited recently when I've been camping in the sticks and had some wonderful dark skies to stare at! Only got some old bins to use (10*50) and don't intend to rush out and get a scope. Been to a few meetings of a local club ( Castle Point Astronomy Club) and am just sorting out membership. Looking forward to a long and educating journey. Andy
