  1. Hello Lisa Marie, Welcome from Rhondda Cynon Taf.
  2. That setup looks familiar, beats a tent in a downpour.
  3. Hello, and Welcome from another member in South Wales.
  4. Hi Gil, The only thing I miss is the Central coast weather and the observing opportunities I took for granted. However, we swapped them for pure water, clean air, a slower pace of life and "real" whipped cream in the dairy products; you can almost hear your arteries hardening, lol. I use to play guitar and base at a very limited level, but have given up due to the arthritis in my hands. Still have a few instruments, including a Stingray & Guild Pilot bass. Stargazers Lounge is a great forum, with some very knowledgeable members more than willing to help. You have found a good place to be. Welcome aboard. .
  5. Hello and welcome from across the pond.
  6. Hello Ross, And Welcome from me too. As Pat says, its been slow, and I've been out of the loop for awhile now; but most of us still seem to be active on the general forum. This plague has changed the whole fabric of life, but fortunately we have a hobby that's the least affected and can always enjoy it at home. It will be nice to catch up with familiar faces and meet other kindred Observers, and hopefully, that will be sooner than later. I'm confident that other members in the group will chime in soon. Hang in there, this group is still alive and kicking.
  7. We are in the Rhondda Cynon Taf lockdown, so highly unlikely to be able to travel. Look forward to catching up with you all again if and when possible. Cheers, Mike & Dorothy
  8. Mine too. My parents moved away back in the 1950's when I was a child, but I came back, liked it here, and bought a home to retire to.
  9. On top of the mountain overlooking the valley where we currently live. .
  10. Prior to 2009, I had two telescopes during the previous 35 or so years. Then I discovered Astronomy forums, and my wallet started to get lighter. Fortunately I was able to restrain the outflow after retiring the old guard and acquiring five replacements over time. All things considered, two telescopes would be satisfactory for my needs.
  11. As I understand, politics are not allowed here, so acquire what you want !
  12. Got to have spares scopes for parts. Only trouble is, these scopes never fail.
  13. This is a very good nightly guide on what you can expect to view on the moon with different scopes.
  14. I would like to suggest an extraordinary book which you and your 7 year old can learn the night sky together through a simple step by step visual guide to picture images that will "stick" in your mind, then you both can go outside at night and be able to find them amongst the myriad of background stars. The book is called " Stikky Night Skies " ISBN 1-932974-01-6 by Laurence Holt Books.
