  5. hi all,, having just really started with astronomy , cant wait to use my new 15 x 70 binos... i thought i would watch the sky at night , but im sorry for saying this but i cant understand what SIR patrick moore says,,he talks to fast for me,,or is it just me , does anybody else struggle to understand him ,, hey i know hes the main man , but i feel its time for prof brian cox to take the show onwards with a modern touch, or perhaps another programme with a presenter i can understand ,im not sure your views please russburslem, staffs:icon_salut:
  6. :Dyes i went to stock port bins and scopes,, having got there the big guy was more worried about he heat of the shop than any helpful advice,,,i was more enthusiastic than him,,, the sky watcher for £130 was possibly better than the heritage 130 dob,, u no the one ,, Steve phoned me with info and good words about my recent bins query,,, trust me , if u want advice use Flo,, the sky watcher on a tripod would of been better for me ,,plus its recommended by the SKY AY NIGHT,I'm guessing they know there stuff Helios 10 x 50 bins for £75.. YER I PAYED THAT OFF THEM sound like a salesman for stevie's FLO I SAY FLO ARE BETTER PRICED WITH HONEST ADVICE,, ANY CHANCE OF BUYING SHARES THERE STEVEY BOY LOL plus i cant understand what Patrick Moore says,, , shh its not ageism at all ,, Brian cox please take to the stage
