  1. working nights for the first 2 shows, and the time of the 3rd show I'm off to a Stargazing event! Iplayer is my friend
  2. Home after a most EXCELLENT night at NLO. I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going! Fabulous people, and some funky scopes when the weather plays ball. Totally amazed at the stuff I got to see tonight Thank you everyone (the new girl that is actually called Sarah lol)
  3. Performing lazurus on this thread as I found the links really useful
  4. did you sort out your nighttime fear Meissa?
  5. Miranda


    Happy new year !!
  6. hehehe I never get tired of reading first light WOW stories Its that wonder and amazement that makes astronomy so addictive - and then you start to work out what your seeing and how it all pieces together in the universe... All seen through our eyes and a bit of kit. Congrats on the scope (and for letting the male ego step aside to read the instructions;))
  7. hey Herbig - so what happens if rain stops observing fun ? And I was down that way for new year and those winds seriously whip around that shoreline!
  8. Just to say shropshire has a fantastic astro society so you should definitely check them out very friendly and will help you out with the scope no probs
  9. On the next page of the process it says after the 5mags for a fiver period it'll take out 20.50 every 6 months as a rolling direct debit. But it does say on the FAQ that you can cancel your subscription anytime, so depends if you are savvy enough (or you remember!) to cancel the subscription when the 5 mags are sent
  10. Fantastic thread! Great idea to compare... and actually helps me realise the smudges aren't just my eyes and they actually are something. But i do think its important to compare what we see with the eye and the amazing images we get from Hubble etc.
  11. welcome to SGL - its a great place And enjoy tinkering in the dark
  12. Hello from another Devonshire star gazer ( well a wannabe one lol)
  13. Hi folks. Been mega busy - as a shift worker getting friday off and then with the wonderful weather we have been having recently as made me a rather rubbish wannabe astronomer lol. Ive only been here a few months but it feels like years already lol. Anyone here going to NLO this friday? I'm trying to swap a shift so I can get to the StarGazing Live event on 9th too!
  14. Off up to shropshire today, so will have bins in the car incase I get a nice clear bit of sky on the drive down. Which would be typical lol.
