  7. It`s eays to spot if there ain`t to many trees and clouds and houses etc about.It`ll look like a star just moving across the sky.I`ve seen it loads of times including coming out of the pub drunk My mate didn`t know what the ISS was lol he asked how did they get it up there.lolwas tempted to say they towed it on the back off a boeing 737

  15. Hey i`ve finally seen the light.......... well Jupiter to be more precise lol i just bout 5 mins ago thought i`d have a lookski out of the window and it was quite clear and saw Jupiter just peeping over the houses and without hesitating i grabbed me telescope and had a look for him/her/it and used the 20mm e/p and my god i forgot the thrill you get from astronomy, i saw Jupiter just as a bright whitecircle no detail And i saw the moon i think they are from SNB Callisto Europa and i think Io and Ganymede but deffo Callisto and Europa i just have fallen in love with this hobby again .Try imagingthem but couldn't i am gonna get me some cider in a min to calm down lol just so pumped up after seeing it, it`s no the detail that matters to me it`s the fact that i know what i saw was Jupiter the biggest planet in the solar system and it`s moons.though i am gutted that i didn`t see any detail cause europas shadow`s on Jupiter right now.Ah well i`m glad off what i saw just a nice dark blackground with the moon and Jupiter, right i gotta stop talking now lol. :p :p :D :D :D :lol: :D :) :p Oh yer is cloudy now so just saw J in time with all 3 e/ps so i`m a happy chappy lol.

    Good Bye

    Hey paul don`t be a plonker and quit, i don`t know what you said, but i`ve said a load of Rubbish that`s offensive on here, some i meant some i didn`t but the point is like what other members have said you are a valid member. more than what i am and i`m still here. Plus words can get worded/read wrong.
  17. i would say get a good pair of binos.I got a pair of 10x50s from this mag subsciption iwas doign thought they`d be cheap taky and Rubbish but no they`re are awesome.I tried em on orion and my g** they were even better then my telescope for wildfield all i could see was like millions of stars.And they are good for those lazy days of when you can`t be asked to use the scope.So yer get a pair.And even if ya don`t use em for astronomy you can use em for bidwatching and days out.if ya do get a pair make sure ya get a mount/stand so they don`t shake.
  18. i would say that it`s the space shuttle columbia dissitigrating in the atmosphere (look at pic 3, you can even seen an orange tail like what you/i do with shooting stars) but seen at different times and as david galvin said bout them not focussing right. UFOs really tut tut.lol
  19. wouldn`t be very hard just a blue circle colured in blue lol but yer m8 cracking image i wondered what the OP loooks like through a "cheap" telescope i mean like not these huge £100000 pro type ones. More please
  20. i can`t help you on the telescope bit but for the mag i`d go astronomy now.
  21. i think i know what star he`s on about because i used to see it alot and used to think that it was such a cool star but i don`t know the name.
  22. the ones i can give you from experience is Don`t plan things in advance they never go to plan Don`t expect to see really good detailed images that you see from magazines it`ll only disappoint you. Have patience Learn as much as you can And the most important one i can think off is collimate your telescope ASAP(as Soon As possible) cause it`s a real pain in the rear end when your looking at like the moon planets etc and they just goo passed quickly because you haven`t collimate it, it`ll also put you off doing astronomy cause it takes the fun out of it, so yer as soon as ya can collimate it. And no i don`t belive in UFOs i belive in life on different planets but not UFOs.
  23. sky @ night is a magazine your`ll have to look in the section wehere they have like new scientist national geographic magazines, it`ll be next to astronomy now astronomy and some others.You get a disc with S@N aswell. oh yer welcome btw.
  24. Now this is more like it I saw 3 Iridiums go passed the other night but couldn`t capture em, but you have caught some(and in excelent detail) and hopefully lots more, congrats Quentin.BTW yoou`re well lucky your only 15 and you have a Canon 350D, i`m 18 and ain`t even got a digital camera except for the one on my phone :oops: [move] Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!! [/move]
