  1. Hi had my first sight of saturn at 4.00am this morning what a fab sight, bit of a wow moment been after seeing it since I had the scope since christmas. So that is Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Mars and Saturn on my list now.

    Viewed using a 12.5mm and 20mm and 6mm for saturn but found that the 12.5mm was the best for saturn.

    Now to get some images of them. :)


  2. Hi all, I have a jessops telescope given to me for a christmas present and been having some great views of the night sky with it

    moon jupiter and venus, and even mars. The moon being the best view as I have only the eyepieces that come with the scope. I have spotted four moons of jupiter albeit very faint but still very chuffed.

    I now have a problem that my image has for some reason started to appear upside down. Could I resolve this by collimation.

    Also I am thinking of getting the Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imaging Camera IV any views on this camera.



  3. Hi I just caught site of your location my family come from down where you are

    have fond memories of the Itchen down at the bottom of my Grandparents garden. Nice photos I am currently in the process of getting the Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imaging Camera IV so I can start taking some photos. Just been looking at Moon, mars and venus and jupiter tonight.

    Regards Carl.

  4. Hi most prob first of many questions, I have a macbook pro and want to do some astrophotography so was looking at buying the Orion StarShoot Solar System Colour Imager IV to make a start with, as this is compatible with the mac. So has anyone got one of these and what are your views on it for taking images.

  5. Hi fellow stargazers on here, just this minute registered here.

    I have been looking on here for a week now since I found this forum seems to be a good starting point to get some good advice.


    Just a bit about myself, santa bought me a telescope for christmas. :D My main hobby is photography of a broad range of subjects from landscapes to wildlife. Also now the universe

    My telescope is a Jessops TA1100-102 Reflecting scope with 6mm

    12.5mm and 20mm eyepieces and a moon filter. I have a 3x barlow lens as well but by what someone was saying and by the tests I have been experimenting with is not much use. Weather permitting :)

    Done better without, hence my profile pic of the moon taken with my Nikon D60 SLR. I am intending to take some more images of the things in our fabulous universe. :D:eek: Well off to ask questions and learn hopefully lol

    Regards Carl :)
