Hello from Windsor


Recommended Posts

Hi, thought I'd better say hello properly as I've already been picking peoples brains after a telescope 'incident'.

I've been interested in science and technology since a I was a child and had an interest in astronomy before my teen years (still have a Prinz Astral 400 in the loft as evidence)

Finally decided to take a look at getting back into astronomy as another occasional pursuit. A few days of research and a stint on Ebay later I have a Celestron 130 SLT.

That was a few weeks back.

I've already had mishaps; http://stargazerslounge.com/beginners-help-advice/142140-collimation-help.html

And already seen the rings of Saturn with my own eyes (incredible!, and if I have a problem with something else just go back to looking at it for inspiration :p)

I know from the help I've already received that this is a good friendly place to be. :)

Look forward to picking your experienced brains very soon.
