  1. I have recently chatted to a very good friend of mine who has recommended the Celestron 114 EQ for observing the planets and Moon with. So I am now saving up for that. Does anyone have any experience of that and can also advise what is the difference between that and the Celestron Astromaster 114?
  2. I was wondering if anyone could advise on a tripod for mounting my celestron 15 x 70 binoculars? I have just bought a Hama 62 star tripod. I am hoping this will be ok. Can anyone offer advice?
  3. Hmmm it seems my shopping finger in August may well be landing on the Skywatcher 130M ! If it is a better scope than the Celestron for observing planets then I shall have to plum for that
  4. I have a bit of a bumper pay packet coming my way end of this month. I shall just have enough to afford a Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ MD. I already own a Celestron powerseeker Az50. Before I take the plunge and buy the Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ MD, can anyone offer some advice? I am primarily interested in the Moon and planets. My dream is to see the rings of Saturn, Jupiter's famous red spot, some Moons and also some nice views of Mars. I also want to see the craters on the Moon. Would the Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ MD fit the bill? I am only really becoming more active in the field of

  6. From what I have read this is more of a spotter scope than anything else. What can I expect to see through this telescope when I get clear skies? Would I see Saturn's rings for example or would it be a blob? I have only just put it together to be honest as when I first got it I was very keen but then I was told it was not very good! I am of course saving up for something more powerful but this will have to suffice for now!
  7. I live on the Wirral too. When is the best time to observe Saturn? I would like to observe it this weekend!
  8. I have just been outside, a bit of cloud but some breaks. Hoping to catch Saturn a bit later on.
  9. The James Webb telescope should be exciting though as that will surely find Goldilocks planets!
  10. I have loved reading your replies! :biggrin: I have just today bought myself an astronomy starter kit. See my thread on planisphere! Should keep me quiet whilst the clouds are hanging overhead!
  11. I shall remember to do that! Thank you! Here is to clear skies this weekend! It is set to be nice weather. And about time too!
  12. I thought it was high time I should invest in one of these, so when I saw an astronomy starter pack with one of these in them I knew I could not pass up such a bargain buy. Hope you like my photos!
  13. I am hoping my binoculars arrive by Saturday, and with the weather set to improve I shall be out in the back garden with them!
  14. I have always loved writing since I was a child. I have written original fiction as well as sci fi. However my first love has to be Sherlock Holmes. For my money Jeremy Brett and Basil Rathbone were my favourite Holmes. I recently got published which surprised even me and if you are interested you can find my book via MX Publishing or indeed Amazon UK. and can be ordered via any good bookshop! Just look up Sherlock Holmes and The Murder At Lodore Falls. You can also download it as a Kindle copy as well. And also from Audible if you prefer listening to a book! I think I shall have to include
