  1. Very impressive works, welcome to SGL and clear skies
  2. I bought an EQ mounted netownian as a complete novice and I have to say I seriously question anyone that says with any significant magnification they could manually move a DOB to track something. It's hard enough with the controls on an EQ mount...
  3. So dear moderators, does someone administering SGL have to enable acces once you rach your 50 posts? My profile now says 51 but for sale section is still empty for me... Thanks in advance
  4. Yep I'm on this too, still finding my way. Looks liek scope needed serious collimation based on recent alignment by a soc. friend with a laser.... Hoping for better views next time I get the scope out
  5. Really impressive, you were tracking Manually or with motor? I hvae a 150P, only recently. Very inspiring if this is what it is capable of...
  6. You ever run a Messier marathon? Our Society is plannig one for early April. We are a little too far north to see everything but still a big challenge.
  7. Obeyone welcome to SGL, scope selection is daunting. Got any Astro Socs near either of your locations? Clear Skies and good luck.
  8. I like the handle, welcome to SGL. Just lovin Paxo's avatar! Clear Skies
  9. Welcome to SGL Anna, I'm sure you'll get lots of clear skies in Suffolk. And welcome to the UK.
  10. Warm welcome to you on SGL, you'll find lots of really useful posts on this site. Clear Skies.
  11. Welcome to SGL and thanks for a great introductory posting.
  12. Welcome to SGL Russ, Happy stargazing and clear skies.
  13. Sounds like some decent kit, clear skies and don't drink too much guinness!
  14. Welcome to SGL, I'm in San Fran at the moment, terrible viewing conditions here, looking forward to relatively clear skies back home.

    Hello from Cork!

    Clear Skies and welcome to SGL, I am also boring the pants of people with facts and information on Astronomy!
  16. Best of luck to you and hope you meet up with some fellow gazers locally.
  17. Dan, sounds like you might have some useful resources for me then as I am a Scout Leader. How do you distribute your material?
  18. Boogie on down then Cliff.... Clear Skies
  19. Welcome to SGL, sounds like you'll be "on yer bike" for gazing then. Good luck, plenty of assistance from people on these forums

    Welcome to SGL, great handle! Enjoy
  21. Welcome to SGL clear skies. I watched the parial solar eclipse from a motorway in Holland a few eeks back!
  22. Wozza welcome to SGL from someone who used to live in Somerset. You will find stacks of useful info on these forums, clear skies....
  23. Some great advice here, definitely try a local society but if you want to just try it out then try buying the book "turn left at orion" or similar and get some 10x50 or similar bino's. I picked omse reasonable ones up from Tesco direct. You'll be able to do some simple star gazing and if you are interested in seeing more you can carry on.
  24. And I've learnt something too. Thanks for the post.. Plannig to purchase one or the other myself in the near future
