    Nr Delamere Forest: I am new and dont know how to navigate around the site. Bear with me!!
  1. I have finally found the 'reply' button. Also that the site is not for Prisoners of war, - I am aware that I am probably not the first to make that connection.
  2. Oh no!! I used to like Ross in the days before I Knew better!!
  3. I think it is a lovely image. I must get myself a decent camera. Keep at it.
  4. Hello Alex welcome from me.
  5. I was out last night at 10.10 and saw a geminid shoot between jupiter and moon! Was showing my son's friend when it flashed across the sky. It was awsome!
  6. Thanks darkly, I have just bought 'Turn left at Orion'.
  7. I would ideally like a scope that is capable of looking at saturns rings, and nebulas. I would like a Celestron or Mead. I like the look of the ETX, it's small, and looks like It doesn't need much fiddling about. I have difficulty with my hands. My fingers are quite numb and I dont have much strength in hands either, so I dont want to risk dropping anything or having small screws tp fiddle with. I dont know how much I should allow but ideally about £300 - £500
  8. I have been a member of LAS (liverpool AS) for about a year. Prior to that I was observing in my dark (spooky at first) back garden. But prior to even that, I was on holiday in Austrailia - Port Douglas. Stayed at a hotel and the receptionist had a telescope which she used, to give guests a tour of the night sky. I was given a star map and was shown the "jewel box" in the "southern cross". It was magical, and I was hooked. I have been using a 15x70 helios binos on a tripod. I am now looking for a scope which is light to carry, not difficult to set up. I would like it to be able to see saturns rings, and view the other lovely deep sky object that are not available to me. Oh, and another thing, it has to go with my outfits.
  9. I think/ know you are, in fact, right.
