  1. Thanks guys. Greatly explained. I am going Turkey in Sept. Maybe i'll bring the binos with ive heard the skies are great there :S apparently. Thanks for the heads up on the colours . I'll bear that in mind. I'm thinking of going to my first astronomy club on Weds.
  2. Have you heard of a Fringe Killer. Would that help on planets etc. ?
  3. Thanks, yep i was still in awe in what I could see. The fact that I had this in my scope was very pleasing. I'll keep trying and testing different combinations of my ep's to give me better views.
  4. Hey guys. I set my scope up yesterday in Essex where the skies were perfect. I headed out at 8pm and finished at around 9.15 pm. The scope was left to climatise for an hour (can't spell correctly.) For the first time I aligned the scope with two stars. Betelgeuse and Polaris. The first thing i headed to was a nebula that was perfectly in view. The Orion Nebula. I had only seen this in my binos before. I know not to expect what is in Star books in terms of the colour and clarity. But all i say was a white haze . I focused the Nebula in my 20mm ep with a barlow. Then i risked using my 6mm wit
  5. Not happy as i have all new bits to look for. But at least ive been learning the constellations on my new Iphone apps !
  6. BEEN cloudy in essex since Xmas Eve!!
  7. Ive got a 6mm as recommend from here. Great wide views for the moon etc.
  8. I think Johnathon Ross et all help different markets of people watch and enjoy the show. As it was meant to be more of a easy watching show. There has to be more . HAS to be!!!
