    Hello bob and welcome to SGL
  11. As above, And welcome to SGL
  12. Yes that's plenty of time. May have just been bad seeing conditions although the sky can seem clear there can still be turbulence in the air. More knowledgeable members will help you If the problem persists
  13. May sound daft but did you use your scope indoors? Or if you did use it outdoors did you leave it at least 20 mins to cool down to the outside temp? The blurry sight may be because of heat.
  14. Hi and welcome. Have a look on bbc stargazing live website lots of info for beginners and things you can print off. Happy stargazing
  15. Welcome Nigel. I am also new so can't really advise on much, but be sure to check the forums there is a thread about eyepeices . But my main advice would be not to worry about adding to your scope yet just get used to using it 4 now and enjoy it. I have had some great views of jupiter with my 10mm eyepiece. But I think you have to take in to account that different scopes and eyepieces have a different magnification, NOTE I THINK, I AM A NEWBIE. lol Happy stargazing
  16. Hi David welcome to SGL. This site is full of friendly helpful people be sure to browse the forums to find loads of info and advice.

  18. Love these posts they make me smile. I also don't have anyone in person to share my enthusiasm over the night sky with, although my partner and parents were amazed at the site of Jupiter/4 moons and our moon through my scope the other night. Any how Congratulations on Mars and Saturn i am yet to see them and i cant wait.. AGAIN CONGRATULATIONS
