  1. nice shot Andy, I have the 1145p with the goto to and I used my mobile and the 25 mm to take pictures of the moon which I posted for a previous competition on the site, some of which were close up of craters, give it a go as you might get some more nice shots this way. I used this method as I don't have the equipment to try the more precise ways of taking snaps Ger
  2. thanks Barry for the above, much appreciated
  3. hi all I was looking to pick up a new camera for the family photos. I was also looking to see if I can get one that would also be useable with a skywatcher 1145p, if anyone has any suggestions please let me know, budget is about €500 thanks Ger
  4. same again, this time some wide angle moons shots using skywatcher 1145p, Samsung phone, filter, and 25 mm eye piece
  5. some craters shots taken with skywatcher 1145p and Samsung phone in Dublin, Ireland. 6 mm, filter
  6. this is my first time entering any SGL challenges and as I don't have a huge amount of equipment I was delighted to see this competition as I am fond of using my Samsung phone to take pictures of the moon using my skywatcher 1145p. this picture was one of many I have taken using my 25mm and Barlow ( if memory serves me correctly ), hopefully I can get out before the end of the month for more ( improved ) snaps. this picture was taken on the 27th of January in Dublin, Ireland
