  1. I think that I will take advantage and get in the garden for the next few nights myself
  2. I have watched bits here and there mainly through YouTube if I'm not mistaken and have been meaning to try and catch it all
  3. Thanks for the replies. I will now get on to topping up my "library" well the small book case that I have anyway.
  4. Firstly, apologies if this has been covered already, I have tried to search but think my search for keywords is too broad a search to find what I am looking for. Seeing as the weather doesn’t seem to want to play and also that I have been a good long while away from the hobby I have decided to re learn everything again. Now I do know I need another copy of turn left at Orion (a bad break up has meant I have lost mine) but I was wondering if anyone can recommend any other good reads to help me in my pursuit of discovering what the universe holds out there. As I said, I tried to search already and if anyone can get me a link to a thread with these I would very grateful. Many thanks all
  5. I have the same scope. I do not have the necessary experience as yet to offer an opinion but I hoping that I can now get chance to take it out for a spin after my life has now settled down to a normal routine. I am interested in the replies and will look to use all the advice given when I do get a chance to get out there myself.
  6. Just come across this post, wondering how you were getting on with the scope and, being from just outside of Manchester myself, if you managed to get in contact with any local clubs at all? Jon
  7. Is it just me or does this image kind of look like there is a very feint land mass there? Either way, truly amazing images and I'm really looking forward for more.
  8. Thanks for the replies, I was thinking of this purely as a starter piece to get to grips with imaging before upgrading. I'll definitely have a look at the other options mentioned. Weighing up options at the minute to see what is user friendly and also how they work with other bits of software needed etc. Its given me other points to look at. Thanks Jon
  9. First of all, apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section. I'm just wondering if anyone has come across, or has any experience of the Bresser WiFi Camera? I have no experience in astrophotography, but this piece of kit looks quite good for a complete beginner at a relatively low cost compared to other bits of kit. Really looking for pro's and con's of this or any recommendations of alternative bits of kit to get me started imaging the great sights of the cosmos. Thanks in advance Jon
  10. Sorry it's took a while to get back to you, here I think is what you wanted to see. Jon.
  11. Hi Steve, Do you mean the connectors that came in the box? Your set up is really looking good, you'll have to let us know how it works when you get to test it out. Jon.
  12. So I got myself a nice delivery today, the build is slowly coming together. Jon
  13. Hi from another fellow Mancunian. This place is definitely a great source of information and you'll get an abundance of varied opinions that I've found very helpful so far. Jon.
  14. Hi Steve, That looks like a good set up there to be fair. Did you use any software to get the graph results? If so what are you using for it and what software would you recommend? On your suggestions I have just ordered this satfinder: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/361468620720?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT should have it by early next week should I order some coax cable also? Thanks Jon
  15. I would recommend this, for me personally, when it got to points I was unsure of and seemed a bit out of my depth it just made me want to learn more about that particular area.
