    Hello all!

    Hi and welcome to the lounge ,your scope will get you going and show you things you have never seen before it's a great start point ,and it's better to start the way you have ,because if you decide it's not for you ,you have lost nothing pat
  4. No No No ,buy a water proof cover stick her out side and wait for,the gaps pat
  5. the moons not interesting when full ermmmmm being a moon addict that's rather strange you would say that and it's not iinteresting wow just wow ! Pat
  6. Hi sounds like you had a,great first light with your new scope , pat
  7. Thanks all again I intend to do the other side next time ,if there is a next time with this cloud pat
  8. Ermm not sure,because you may do doodle out side and get back inside to either redraw or touch the image up and turn it into some it's not ,that said I draw,sketch loads and what I would say is get a pencil and paper and practice ,and remember your drawing for your self and no one else keep that in mind because what people do,is,draw for other people to look at I draw to rcord things I usually do the moon because for me I love shadows that are cast . thers to types of drawings,one is where you sketch what you see I do this ,the other is drawing to create what looks like a photo ,give the ipad app ago and I look forward to your sketches also try this ,put any object on a table Apple ,a shoe a cup and put a lamp on the table so it casts a shadow ,try and draw it , repeat this a few times and do not compare your drawings till you have at least three and see how you go pat
