    Hi All

    Hi Steve, Welcome! Good to see another non-science based newbie (I'm an English teacher, so like you, I've spent most my life reading books rather than in the lab).
  2. It seems to have been cloudy for weeks. Starting to regret the nights I saw Julpiter rising from the front window and was too lazy to go outside
  3. I tend to find that clear nights tend to occur on occasions when I'm either very tired or I've imbibed too much red wine to safely transport me and a telescope into the back garden in the dark. Hope you get a good session in though.

    How do

    Hi all, Thank you for all the hellos and the warm welcome. Brantuk- I'm looking to upgrade to a Skywatcher SynScan 127. I'm not sure how much budget I'll have to play with but I've been impressed with what I've seen from this scope. You seem to get a lot of bang for the bucks and I enjoy planetary observation. Double Kick Drum- I'm also ruralish actually. Between Rochester and Gravesend. Can't say we get the best skies but it could be worse. Look forward to learning a lot a hopefully being able to contribute something too. Best wishes, Rob A

    How do

    Hi, Just wanted to introduce myself. My name's Rob and I'm from north Kent in the UK. I'm and English teacher in my day job but I took up astronomy last year because I've always had a science/ mathematics bug-bear to get over. I've really enjoyed it so far and seeing Saturn for the first time last spring was worth the late nights and swearing. Currently I have a Celestron 130 but hoping to upgrade soon- fingers crossed. Anyway, that's me. Look forward to finding my way around. Rob
