  1. Thanks for all your help. I had a fab adventure, found my self alone in one of my favourite spots. Later a few others arrived but none were astronomers. Even so, what a special experience. ????
  2. Well I've got it all together at least. And don't understand all the alignment bit but can see the moon already. Looks great. ??
  3. Here are some pictures. I think there are 5 or 6 eyepieces.
  4. Thanks everyone, I'll definitely have a good tonight, it's really cloudy this morning, hope it clears. I can find north star easily, dad was a sailor so taught me that at a tender age. The telescope in the photo looks similar but perhaps more modern. Our was built in 1999 and purchased new in 2000. Unfortunately I do live on a main road with horrid orange lights and if I were going to enjoy the stargazing I'd have to get something smaller and lighter to transport. I can't even lift the wooden crate it lives in so will need to find a helper to take it out. I did call the southdowns planetarium. And there is a kind lady I'll call again to see if she knows anyone going out. I wouldn't be put off by an all night out once in a while. I'm fond of the great outdoors! Often best by night. Thanks again will keep you posted. ?
  5. Hi, I'm an absolute novice. My 85 year old dad has given me his telescope to sell but since I've got it I'd like to go to Goodwood west Sussex perhaps on Sunday night to watch the eclipse. Ambitious since I have no idea how to set up the telescope, it's a tal- 100rt. Can anyone advise me? I do have a love of the world and it's wonders, frequently taking pics of the moon on my mobile, only to get a white dot on the screen ? thinking I need my tent and my trangia stove for a cold night ahead. Is anyone going up to the trundle at Goodwood that might help me? Pretty please? Thanks for reading my post.
