  1. Hi Thanks for the reply. I am hoping to go to the astro night on the 18th Feb. Not bought a thing yet. Only have a pair of binoculars at the moment I have been told Redmires is not a bad place to view but its a bit spooky up their on your own
  2. Hi all I am a beginner but have been lurking on this forum for a while now. Not taken the plunge and bought a scope yet. Would be interested to hear from any others in North / West Sheffield for hints / tips or perhaps some practical guidance. Thanks Robert

  8. welcome Roger, keeps us informed when you buy a scope
  9. do you actually save money making your own scope ?
  10. thanks for the replies. So if I had a scope with a motorised mount I could use something like stellarium to "guide the mount ?
  11. Apologies if these are daft questions .... 1. I understand how GOTO systems work in that the scope is guided to the particular object you are wanting to view but do they also track the object ? 2. If a mount is motorised does it still need "guiding" software to track objects for astro photography ?
  12. thanks, this thread has cleared up a few questions I had. Like Lee I am am confused beginner
  13. hi Lozzy Keep us informed about what you eventually buy. I am in the same position but trying to resist buying anything until I am a little more knowledgable. I want to buy something that also suitable for imaging in the future
