  1. What a complete Bottom this neighbour is! I think I would struggle to be as nice as you. Have you considered asking him what he wants? It's a crap thing to have to do but maybe there is something he wants they say everyone has a price! Also what about this gezebo as an idea maybe you could make the roof to open up? I hope you get it sorted. https://www.argos.co.uk/product/4648059
  2. Just a quick update! I have just purchased myself a pair old 7x50 binoculars for around £15. I have just been out north of gothenberg sweeden in I reckon about a bortle 4 and I am blown away by how much I can see I just about made out the globular cluster in hurcules I can't wait to look through my telescope. I also looked at a group of stars I think is hyades. I have always seen them faint with the naked eye looking like a small blue ursa major but tonight it was amazing. Bright electric blue really spectacular and through a set of £15 second hand binos! I am really glad I joined SGL I would never have thought to get binoculars. What a great website and what a great night I have had. Off to bed one happy chappy. Thank you for all the advice Kind regards Kyle
  3. It's all quite exciting this isn't it! I'm a bit country man and just love the outdoors! I know one thing the your advice in country parks is spot on! I'm hoping to sweet talk a farmer or two.
  4. That sqm is cheep I'm getting one . okay so I read the price wrong ill have to wait for one!
  5. Hi uplooker No I have not joined any society I'm not sure I want to yet. Im trying to find somewhere that's my own little escape . Maybe in time I will want to
  6. Just a quick update! I tried some of the things suggested above but to no avail. So I gave up in the end. I shall just buy a new set when I am home.
  7. Hi this is my second post on SGL and I am new to astronomy. As my post suggests I am looking for a dark sky map/website ect. I have found some but I wondered if there is a really good one that has a lot of detail. I live in Hampshire and I'm trying to find the perfect spot to jump in the car to. I obviously have some places in mind but want to compare them. Actually just writing this has gave me an idea and another question! Maybe try some of my spots out with a light meter. Has anyone else done this? Is it worth it? Okay 2 new questions! I look forward to hearing from you. Ps I just brought my first scope and it was cloudy Kind regards Kyle
  8. That sounds like it's also worth a try peter thanks
  9. Okay worth a try I didn't notice if one side was higher or not I'll have look tonight if it's clear
  10. Ships and stars yes I think they have had a hard life to be fair! so im off to look for some new ones as I think it's a worthy investment I can see a set will go well alongside my new scope star hopping with my wife! I was going to get a goto but I have changed my mind I think I'll just get a push to as I'm loving learning the sky. I figured extraterrestrial was space so I just removed the alien. I keep reading 10x50 for what I want?
  11. Yeah they confused me a bit! And thanks glad to be aboard
  12. Hi ships and stars thank you for your reply. The brand is eagle eye and they are 7x50. I think that they are only cheap from looking online. I can only find adjustment on the right eyepiece and it only turns a very small amount. I think they are fixed. Maybe they are out of collimation but they are okay to use on terestrial objects. I believe terestrial is the rite word there! Ps thanks for the other replies.
  13. Hello SGL I'm Kyle. This is my first post! Firstly I would like to say thank you for having me and secondly that I am a complete novice and I stumbled on this great site on my quest for knowledge to get me out there amongst the stars. I am working my way towards a scope but first I have borrowed some binoculars from work (ships binoculars). I am enjoying some dark skys in sweeden at the moment and trying to star hop and I have to say loving it! I have always star gazed but never tried to put it in order I have always just been in awe. But as the title states I am geting a double image when I look up. The binoculars don't have any focus on them I believe. Not that I can find anyway! Is this the problem? I would really like to know what causes it. Thank you in advance as I know someone will know the answer as I have been digging through the vast amount posts on here and there is a wealth of collective knowledge on SGL!
