  1. Hi Now back in Bristol and the weather has been useless, the binoculars arrived yesterday and we are currently enjoying permanent cloudy sky's. I have a lot to learn ;-) As for telescopes I have plenty of time to enjoy my binoculars bar the weather.................... Could make for an interesting Xmas present and will give me plenty of time to read and peruse around refactors, reflectors & all kinds of what nots. When ever we do get a break here want to look at Jupiter first.................of course along with the moon!!
  2. Quick update have bought the Olmpus DPS 1 10x50 binoculars, with a Opticron binocular tripod mount and a tripod. In total just under £100 ponuds for the lot.

I currently don't have a great deal of money and am looking to just gaze at our solar system and make sense of what is out there, basically find my way around the night sky before delving further. I guess that comes with time and and more than happy to walk before I can run. This for me is all part of the enjoyme
  6. Hi am almost brand new to star gazing, bar a brief flirtation in my early teens sitting in our back garden with a star chart way back in their 80's. Now mid 40's and looking to pick up astronomy again after reading Brian Cox for the last couple of years and last months BBC Star Gazing which totally blew me away!! Am torn between starting out with a pair of Binoculars or go for an entry level telescope? My question is this. My eye sight has always been 19-21, never had any need for glasses yet, however I was looking at the moon last night with a x 10 pair of Binoculars and I couldn'
