  1. It was a 3D show in the dome so the entire thing was the night sky while being shown certain constellations, then zooming through space (very weird lol) to Andromeda and just really informative but the feeling like you're there lol It was really good. Well worth a visit
  2. Just wondered if anyone went to see the space show during Space week ? I took 2 of my daughters who thought it was amazing, but I kept shouting out the answers to stuff
  3. Thank you. I'm trying but finding it hard finding them anywhere else. I would rather have new so maybe I need to wait a little before diving in. It will be a long term thing so I dont mind waiting
  4. Thanks for the info That's great. I'm not far from the Downs either
  5. I wanted to try binoculars but I cannot hold my arms up for long at all (as silly as it sounds) unless I had a table under my elbows, due to the crap that I have ! But seeing Jupiter's moons must be awesome. I have a fascination with Jupiter
  6. Thank you. Really appreciate all this advice. I'm not in a wheelchair...... yet but thank you for thinking of that as I wouldn't have ! Thank you Thank you. This advice is great honestly. Giving me a lot to think about That's brilliant thank you. Can I just turn up or do I have to join beforehand?
  7. Everything you just said may have been Swahili How do I learn all this stuff
  8. Yes I did look at BAS last night. And I live just off Gloucester Rd and my Dad knows Massive Attack And I've lived up country, all over Devon, Cornwall and lived in Australia, bit Bristol is the Best
  9. Thank you. See its these things that I know nothing about. I would be sitting down too. Are there specific scopes that I should consider then ?
  10. My son lives near Torpoint, so was going to get him to collect it as he's coming up soon and could bring it with him.
  11. I'm looking at this right now ! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F153663511382
  12. I'd love to be in a position to do that, but am disabled without transport, and most of them are far away
  13. I guess my issue is that without buying a scope, I have no way of learning about how they work or practicing with one. I can't attend meetings etc so it's really a case of jumping in and buying one !
  14. FLO is more expensive as theirs are new, but on Ebay they have the same ones used going for less with the same spec etc. I will ask about any fungus or scratches on mirrors etc too which I didnt know about before.
  15. Thanks for the literature advice Rob. That's brilliant. On ebay some of the scopes are going for roughly 47.00 - 80.00 for the same ones that FLO are selling, making them half price or less ! Should I not trust the ones that FLO sells ?
