    Hi from shifnal in shropshire .

    Hi all, my name is baz and have just bought myself a pair of 10x50 bins and a mini stargazer pack. Thought i would keep it simple at first, and try and learn a few constellations. I have read a bit about telescopes ,and what would be good, and not so good for beginners but i have refrained from just jumping in at the deep end . Baz
