  1. Hi Daz, I joined the forum in November and since then have learned a lot about my new hobby thanks to the group (as I am not naturally gifted to find objects in the sky). One of my problems has been to find an area/place where it is really dark. What would really help me and maybe others is if there would be a map (of the UK) indicating where there are specially good spots with no/very low light pollution. I live in Cheshire and although I think I know the area, I would find it very helpful to know, where best to place my telescope. This also could help to optimise travel plans for weekend trips. Cheers, Inês

    Hello everybody

    Ups, yes I forgot to mention I decided for the Nexstar 130SLT. I can’t afford a telescope that does everything so I settled for what I think will suit me best. It seems to me that telescopes in this price range are all quite decent all rounder. Because I don’t understand much about the whole issue yet I suppose I will be just happy to see the Saturn rings (which have always fascinated me), Venus, Jupiter, etc., through my own scope. I am not the most patient person and I think finding something in the sky quickly is a definite plus, hence I was specially charmed by ‘goto’.

    Hello everybody

    while trying to find some good advice I found you! I am in the process of buying a telescope (my first) and oh surprise somebody else had exactly the same questions and could not decide between the same telescopes I am considering. Thanks to your advice I made up my mind now. Needless to say that I am a total beginner! Actually I just wanted to say ‘thank you’ for helping somebody else, hence also helping me. I am very impressed by the time and effort you put into helping and sharing. Cheers Inês
