  1. How can you see so many stars in your garden when I can count them all using both hands in my garden??? Where are you located in london? Here's hoping for a clear sky and a power cut for a few hours:cool: Cool picture. thanks Mark
  2. Hi Steve, after reading the letter properly it states that I will receive the Jan 2010 issue. Below this in bold 'Titles are published during the month PRIOR to the date shown on the cover'. I assume this means I should receive the January issue this month??? Mark
  3. Steve I ordered 3 weeks ago and just received a letter telling me that my 1st issue will be delivered in january. mark
  4. Just come across this website and from what I've seen, it seems pretty cool. I hope some of you find it of use. SKY-MAP.ORG Mark
  5. This is an excellent resource for a beginner like me. Thanks:headbang:
  6. Thanks everyone. I'll look into this tomorrow. Mark
  7. Hi, can anyone tell me the cheapest place to get a subscription of Sky at Night magazine? I have looked at the BBC magazine website, but was wondering if anyone new of any other sites that have subscription offers. thanks Mark
  8. Thanks Ian. It has the smooth surface as you described. It doesnt mean a lot to me at the moment, but I thought Id check as I was told that it came with it. Here's hoping for some clear skies.
  9. Hi I have just set up my brand new Skywatcher Explorer 150P EQ3-2 and would like to know if it has been supplied with a Crayford focuser. This is my first scope, so to be honest I have no idea what I am looking at. Thanks Mark (newbie extreme)
  10. Thanks to all that replied. I've just gone for the Sky-Watcher Explorer 130. At £116 delivered for my 1st scope I cant complain. I would have loved to have spent more, but its a recession after all:). Heres hoping for lots of clear skies. Mark
  11. Definately Astronomia. https://www.astronomia.co.uk/astro/index.aspx
  12. As the title says really. I was just wondering if anyone has any good or bad information about this company. They have some good prices on certain items with free p&p. Thanks Mark:icon_salut:
  13. Thanks everyone. I offered the guy on Ebay £110, but he said he would rather let the auction run. Oh well, at least I know how much to go up to. Worst comes to the worst I'll have to break the bank and go for the Explorer 150P. thanks again. Mark:icon_salut:
  14. Help please. What you say a second hand Skywatcher Explorer 130 PM in A1 condition is worth? I have seen one on Ebay that is only a few miles from where I live. It was my first choice of scope before I realised they did not make them any more. Thanks Mark:iamwithstupid:
  15. Hi Mike, my father in laws scope is an old Tasco refractor of which I think may be on a par of the Lidl scope if that. I live on the outskirts of London, so light polution is not bad, but it is a problem. I was hoping not to spend any more than £200 as mainly my wife will kill me. Will the 130P and 150 be that much better than the Explorer 130 and Skyhawk 1145PM? If so I could just order one and tell my wife over dinner later. Thanks Mark
