  1. Thanks for the replies everyone some really good information. I did think about Rivington, is it ok? The Bolton Astro Society is quite close to me but I had a look on their website and it didn't really have much information about nights / places to go, not averse to joining the society though. Regarding Todmorden, I think that's a trip for me at a weekend it's about 33 miles away. Possibly this coming Saturday, what is it like on a Saturday night? Busy? Great tip with the upturned bucket happy-kat thank you. I notice you have the heritage 130p Johnny, do you set up on the floor? Thanks agai

    Hi All

    I did think about looking for a 2nd hand better quality scope, but I assumed the better they are the more complicated they are and I don't want to overcomplicate things for myself and get annoyed!

    Hi All

    Good evening everyone. Just thought I'd introduce myself! My name is Lee, I'm 26 and I live in the North West of England, not too far away from Bolton. I have always been interested in stargazing without ever having a proper scope to do anything about it. I did get one for a birthday when I was younger but it wasn't very good and I didn't know how to work it so quickly forgot about it as a hobby. Anyway, I have my own family now and although my son is very young, I would like to get into stargazing properly myself so that if the time comes where he, like me, takes an interest in it, then I c
