    Hi and welcome - we all have to start somewhere
  4. Having read the many comments - this sounds like a pretty good idea. I, like quite a few others on here, don't post that often - so reaching 500 'meaningful' posts myself isn't going to happen - but I do enjoy reading and learning from others knowledge of the subject. I do contribute where possible, but I feel I just don't have the in depth 'knowledge' to respond to some of the posts. It's a shame that this has happened - but any 'open' forum where people put their faith in others is going to suffer from so called 'traders' trying to make money!!

  11. Nice picture, I drive past the 'telescope' quite a lot so it's nice to see it like this.
  12. Watched it last night - amazing, all those stars and from my back garden I can hardly see any of them It was good though - particularly like the hotel in the desert!! As there's no natural water, it must have taken some doing to fill the pool!!
  13. 61 - took early retirement last year and found a new hobby
  14. Hi and welcome from me too
  15. This may be of some use? I struggled for ages trying to understand the manual for my EQ5 - then came across this on here - printed it out and suddenly it all made sense Astro Babys HEQ5 Polar Alignment
  16. I totally agree - it's also prevented me from going down the 'wrong route' and spending a fortune
