  7. Gotta look after yourself Pat, the driving part is a downer though.
  8. Hi Gethyn, welcome to the group, lovely bunch of people on here.
  9. For anyone who missed it, it on catchup http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00yb434/seven-ages-of-starlight
  10. Not TV but YouTube has some good stuff on it, wonders of the universe, Stargazing live, oh loads are on there to see. I put them on when I am ironing makes that boring job a little more interesting for me.
  11. Hi and welcome, that is exactly how I felt when I first started, with the help of the good people here, a read of Turn left at Orion and google I started to find my way around in the dark. Any questions on things that confuse you will soon be answered on here if you post them and you will soon be enjoying your new scope.
  12. I have both of them and they are lovely in my 150p Dob and my 8SE.
  13. Back garden which isn't to bad but by 1am or so the street light goes out anyway, so early viewing is fine but late viewing is much better.
  14. Thank you everyone for your nice comments, your all very kind. Toxic, thanks for the links, I will certainly be having a nose at them
  15. Thanks for all your kind comments. Na, I won't be getting into AP on a serious level, twaz just a bit of fun that I will do now and again, the cost and skill level are beyond my abilities, but I do admit, it was a very exciting and satisfying experience
  16. My husband goes to work in the early hours and I have always gotten up with him to make his breakfast, so we are early to bed people and very early to rise, was out at 3.30 till 5am.
  17. I am over the moon with it. My first attempt with my 1100D on my 8SE, Orion, one single shot as I only have my Macbook and wouldn't know how to stack anyway, ISO 800, 30 sec. No processing as I don't know how to do that either, not the best I know but a gem for my memories and just to show a few family members and a lot of fun. Then just this of Betelgeuse
  18. Since I have had my 8SE, I have been very happy with it, the goto is excellent, I usually just do the 2 star alignment. As far as vibration, it was terrible the first night but my husband got me some sound proof mat thingamajig for it to stand on and I don't extend the legs all the way. The vibration has completely gone and I love the optics.
  19. But X Factor is starting back tonight
  20. I suppose it depends on how you feel the crime rate is in your area, I leave mine when its dry in an outside porch that doesn't have doors so if its nice, my scope is already cooled and I only have to move a few yards onto the patio to get observing in a a few minutes.
