  1. If I had a collection of scopes like yours, although I'm only a beginner there would only be course of action. The wife would have to go
  2. :mad:Two nights ago, the skies over the south:cool: Cumbria coast were excellent for viewing. I took my mead ds2114 to a hill overlooking Morecambe bay, set it up and waited for dark, for thirty to forty minuets it was quiet and lonely. I started a guided tour on the go-to system, I was really enjoying the night sky when at about 10.30 the whole world and there dogs turned up. Over the space of the next hour a dozen or more people with dogs, torches and radios appeared,all nice and friendly and experts on astronomy, wanting a look through scope. After two or three had knocked the tripod to bits then commented, they could see nowt I packed up and came home. Dose this happen often?

    Thank you all very much for your very warm welcome,after all my moaning, last night I had what I am calling a baptism of fire. Up here in the Furness area of Cumbria U.K. I had a fantastic view of the moon, now that was the bees knees, but then I stumbled on star with rings around it, even a total beginner like me knows I had spotted Satern. I am hooked. For those who asked I have a mead DS114s go-to thank again Sean
