  1. Hi all, Thanks once again for all your responses. I have a bit to be going on with and one of my two books recommended by members on SGL arrived today so will be more clued up once I have read it. I will try to get along to local astronomy club and take things from there. i have to say I was surprised at how many and how quickly people responded.

  2. Hi everyone, My wife and I are new to astronomy and the SGL but I have already spoken with a few members on another topic regarding using binoculars and a Nikon pro staff 5 82mm digiscope we use for birdwatching until we can work out what we want to buy. My wife and I are looking to buy our first telescope but don't want to rush in and spend our money on something that we will regret as would appear to happen to others frequently.

I will have a look at binocularsky and Stellarium as you suggest. ronl - I will indeed download the newsletters from binocularsky as I probably need all the help I can get to get started. JOC - You are correct in that the Scope has a 45-degree angle on the viewing eyepiece. I will have a look to see if there is a 90-degree one available and price it up. If it is not too expensive I might just buy it and give the scope a go too. Ray
  5. Hi Everyone, Like a few others out there, my wife and I are new to Astronomy. We are currently looking at purchasing our first Telescope and have been looking at some of the posts on your great forums. We thought we had an idea of what we wanted to get but like everyone, that changes with the information you give and receive from others and what you want to be able to do. I am going to take the advice from some of your members and do a bit more reading before spending our hard earned cash. My questions are as follows: 1. We currently do a lot of birdwatching. Would t
