  1. Hello and welcome to the forum.
  2. Hello and welcoe to SGL. Damian's advice is spot on. I know it can be difficult to resist the itch to purchase a shiny new telescope straight away, but gaining a bit more knowledge beforehand would be extremely valuable in helping you finding what you need, and will use. Qualia's post is also a good read, if you have some time to spare : http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/196278-what-can-i-expect-to-see/ Cheers, H.
  3. Hello Lucas. Welcome to the forum and the hobby

    Haaa the excitement of waiting for, then unpacking a new telescope (drools)... Welcome to SGL, and +1 on the recommendation for "Every photon counts".
  5. Hello Nigel, welcome to the forum and good luck with your astro-photography project As Swag72 mentionned, the book "Making Every Photon Count" is a valuable purchase to consider.
  6. Hello and welcome to the forum
  7. A fine choice this 200p. Welcome to the forum
  8. This is indeed a great sticky from Qualia. Although it helps to start from page 1 http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/196278-what-can-i-expect-to-see/
  9. Hello Brad, and welcome to the forum
  10. Greetings Lawrence. If you want to venture onto astro-photography, the book "Every Photon Counts" is a great place to start. Good luck with this project

  13. I actually have some anti corrosion spray for motorcycle, but I would never have thought to use it on my mount... Thank you gents for the tips and replies !
  14. I recently got myself an AZ4 mount with steel tripod, and was wondering if it was OK to store it in the garden shed. I am a tad concerned long time storage in a humid environment, however it is quite bulky to keep at home (and the other half is not impressed)... Can I just leave it in the company of the lawn mower without ending up with a pile of rust within a year or 2 ? The convenience factor would also be quite pleasant.
