  1. I dont know, Egyptians did refer to iron as "Metal of Heaven."
  2. I would suggest binoculars- a great aid and pleasurable viewing in and of themselves. For that money you could get a highly recommended Nikon or Olympus(recommended frequently by this forum)
  3. Very nice pics! When i lived in America I really appreciated the magical night sky of that country but that was in the suburbs! As beautiful as that pic is i bet it didn't capture(nor can any picture) the magic of the night sky you must have experienced.
  4. Mars is a target I want to spot soon! Seeing it over the Scottish countryside must have been a surreal experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
  5. Fantastic pics! What's it like stargazing in the southern hemisphere? My girlfriend is from Zambia and she soon is going to take me to see her family there and yes we are planning on stargazing?
  6. I know the feeling mate! I don't have much money at the moment and I was like that just for my celestron upclose g2 10X50s! Goodness knows what I'd do if I was waiting for your nice gear! ?
  7. Thankyou very much I'm new to stargazing and I will subscribe!
  8. I will swallow my pride and admit that I didn't. I am a newbie to stargazing etc so please excuse my beginner's arrogance. My apologies.
  9. Of course! But by the title it made it seem like telescopes back then in general, it might have been better to use other brands i.e. Celestron, etc as an RPI for telescopes.
  10. Fantastic tell me if its any good. Clear skies!
  11. Welcome to England! Ahhh clouds the stargazer's natural enemy.....
  12. Good luck on your trip and tell us how it goes! With the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with no light pollution, I can imagine it will be an experience you will never forget! Still, though should've chosen South Yorks
  13. Hmm the problem with the list is that it is Vixen and to this day their prices could hardly be described as rock-bottom .......
  14. Might I suggest a book? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Stargazing-Binoculars-Robin-Scagell/dp/1849073007/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1464261279&sr=8-12&keywords=binoculars+stargazing This uses a significant part of the book explaining how to choose binoculars from a pair of professionals, its worth listening to their advice. If you've got 150 quid to spend on binoculars read up before buying! Also heres a section on BBC's Sky At Night magazine with reviews of binoculars from your kind of price range/specs! http://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/telescope-reviews/binoc
  15. My apologies Dave i completely misread the question. Happy viewing!
  16. Hmmm I don't know about anyone else but accuweather's stargazing forecast does the job
