    Hello again!

    Welcome back to the fold
  5. Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  6. Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  7. Got mine from FLO and it worked no problem. Just the stand that was no good.
  8. Not had a clear day here for more than 3 weeks, so being rather bored I decided to buy a small study set of meteorites. I found it very interesting looking up the stories of how they were found and classified. I never thought I would have pieces of the Moon, Mars and 4Vesta in my hand. I decided to buy a small digital microscope for a closer look. I could only get a 2 mp scope but I was wowed with the views that popped up on my computer screen. The only problem was , like buying a beginners telescope, the stand that came with the microscope was only a degree above being useless. On to Amazon and I got a much better retort stand. Now I am completely hooked on meteorite collection and my bank balance is starting to groan.
  9. Another lovely set David. Not had a clear sky here for more than 2 weeks.

  13. I think you will find it a good bit cheaper to buy direct. Only to be expected and not meant as a slight to FLO who I use for all my astro purchases.
  14. The box came with the set. You could try Spacerocks. It’s run by David Bryant. He is very good to deal with.
  15. Thought I would add to my meteorite collection which stood at 1 meteorite and 1 tektite. Study set from Spacerocks arrived today

  18. Really nice capture Paul. Especially given its low altitude.
  19. Some reading for these cloudy nights
  20. Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  21. Congratulations on your successful first light session. Planning ahead will greatly add to your enjoyment and will be a big help in the learning process we all have to go through. I hope you have success when talking with your neighbour . As for sleep deprivation of course the darker nights of Autumn and winter will help. I solved this by taking retirement, but this is rather a drastic measure unless you art of a certain age. Good luck with your journey into this wonderful pastime.
