  2. I'll teach you to knit if you like , I'll have loads of spare time when I throw my scope down the end of the garden in temper, If it does'nt decide to play and focus in soon I may have to find another frustrating hobby ha ha!!! Trudie

I have a Nexstar130 bought as a pressie in November and as a complete novice I managed to do 3 star alighnment and once I worked out the name of 1 star tried alighning on that only SUCCESS!! Mind you that was on almost the only clear night since November. Regards

  12. Hi Folks, my name is Trudie, I am very new to stargazing, however have always had an interest. With Xmas + a birthday I got a Celestron 130SLT and laptop. i would like to have a go at photography, whats the cheapest way to start? We have 2 digital cameras (don't know if that helps or not). I posted this question in the welcome page and got some replies,(very helpful). It was suggested I ask the question in this forum. Seems to me I have an awful lot to learn!!! Regards and Thanks Trudie
  13. Hello to everyone, and thank you for your advice, I am probably getting ahead of myself with the photography bit, but I've always been a bit impatient. Is my scope up to the task. Phil has a Nikon 5700 and a Minolta Dimage S414.
  14. Hi Jamie (and Gary) pleased to meet you both, Gary I do have a laptop (also a present to go with the telescope). Can I view what I can see through the scope on the laptop? (As you can probably tell I don't know loads about computers either but I'm learning!!! My other half has 2 digital cameras but unsure as to there use for this.
  15. I got a Celestron 130SLT for xmas, and would love to have a go ay photography, but do not know where to start. Can someone advice as to the best and (cheapest) way to proceed, nice to meet you all.
