  3. Just been searching the net. To windy to get the scope out so will grab the bino's
  4. Can you see it with the naked eye?
  5. Heard the tail end of a news report saying a Supernova is happening and it will be the brightest the next few days (If the clouds clear) Does anyone know any more about it or where to look? Thanks
  6. A friend at work showed me the latest SOHO image that has a really bright object that has moved from right to left on the image. I told him I thought it was a planet but wasnt 100% sure. Anyone else know?

  8. Glad you made it across Look forward to more pictures
  9. I thought planes but they said they faded out and disappeared. Also its unusual for planes to all go in the same direction.
  10. A friend has just me if there's a meteor show at the moment as they saw these this today:
  11. I will be heading over there and will be wishing the clouds away

  14. Welcome to the site Joe. I too am from Portsmouth and there are loads more of us. Have a look at HantsAstro - Making Astronomy Shine for You as we try to observe as a group as much as possible. Next Saturday we are doing a Stargazing Live event over at Alton if you want to come along. Its a realy friendly club and gives you a chance to see what the different scopes are all about and what suits your needs before spending your hard earned cash. We normaly observe at Butser Ancient Farm, Butser Hill and Intec to name but a few. Be nice to meet you if you
  15. After a nice clear day I was hoping for clear skys tonight. I was in luck so put the scope out to cool down and get my bits together. -1 and frost with clear skys After setting up I went for Mizar as I found out it was a double so thought that would be a nice easy target. Nice and easy to see Mizar and its friend Alcor. Next up was Betelgeuse to see its colours flashing away and then on to the Orion nebular. It was good seeing so pushed SW150 upto 6mm eye piece with a x2 Barlow and swear I could see 4 stars but not sure. Then onto the Andromeda Galaxy (I never tire of seeing 2.5 million miles) After looking around the sky I decided to try and find something rather than wondering around the sky. Seen a few pictures of M36 and M38 and after looking at the app on my phone I went looking and found them Was nice to actually find something and I think next time I am going to set myself some targets. So all in all a good night.
  16. Also a shame the Perseids peak is on the 12th-13th at the same time as the full moon. The Perseidsshow was the best I have ever seen and all round the field you could hear people oh and ar'ing like a firework show.
  17. We are away the last 2 weekends so looks like we will miss out. Just have to wait till 2012
  18. Hopefully its not the weekend of the 20th as we are away and loved it the last few years
  19. There will be quite a few I am sure. There is the Isle of Wight on and Salisbury one too
