    Hello from China

    Hello mate, welcome to the mad house that is sgl , you will find an answer for most things here ( but not the winning lottery numbers)
  2. I've fought with aperture hunger for ages, largest scope is a sky max 127 which is fab for planets, my garden points North, has a railway built up on the right and suffers from light pollution. One thing that has helped is the twenty foot tarp I put up against left hand fence, reduces the annoying security light glare from neighbours quite a bit. Nxt scope will hopefully be 300mm dob, recently started using a field five mins away. Still get glare etc but more freedom of movement
  3. Welcome to sgl mate, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. Any questions then don't be afraid to ask, someone will have an answer for you ?

    I'm back

    Hello to members old and new, I've been away for awhile due to the rigours of life In general. But I'm Looking forward to dusting off the scopes and binos and getting reacquainted with the dark twinkly stuff
  5. Plus one for synscaninit, makes it easy entering data into a goto, I have stellarium on my s5 and Google sky maps as well
  6. Ello mate. Enjoy your stargawping as the rest of us do. No such thing as a daft question Herr. Well maybe except will the clouds ever sod off !!
  7. What ever you choose mate. Just enjoy it. Take your time and get to know your scope and that will increase your viewing no end. That and the clouds doing one
  8. Well I shuffled through the door at work on chrimbo day. The only mug actually at work , and defiantly not full of cheer and bonhomie when what did I spy on the work top? A present with my name on and scrawled on the label " for you as you are on your own ".... Curiously I picked it up, sussed it was a book and unwrapped it.. I have the standard recommended reads.. Tlao etc but found I now owned the stargazers handbook by Giles sparrow. What a great book it is. Not too technical with good pictures..... The rest of the day was however @#@# merry chrimbo fellow star gawpers
  9. Well the clouds put paid to any other attempts to view Jupiter. And I like my pit toouch to stay up all night just in case. Thanks again for the replies guys. Very informative
  10. Nice info acey, much appreciated Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  11. Getting back to my original post about Jupiter and its moons, the damn clouds have scuppered my plans for tonight.... However I'm in Cornwall till Saturday so fingers crossed I will get another chance to view the aforementioned planet. Thanks again for the replies guys, and tribute is a nice drop too Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  12. Interesting replies people, thanks for taking the time. The plan tonight is to go for a peek around half ten, and again around half six tomz morning . decided to skip the pub as some bright spark has purchased a polypin of doom and its residing in the spare room on the window sill, won't imbibe too much as keen to work out whether there is any credibility, tho the idea that its just a faint star in the right place seems quite valid Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  13. Perhaps wishful thinking then, not used to such dark skies... Hmmm didn't bring scope this time but do have bins so will venture forth again tonight to see what I can spy in the heavens, after planning some observing in the pub cough cough Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
