Thank you all for great advice. I think I need to purchase a dew filter. Last night was amazing. Clear sky. Looked like the heavens have finally opened.

Trouble was that it was 1am by the time I managed to get to trying the scope and I was completely knackered.

I aligned the red dot finder with the scope so hopefully I know what to do in that regard.

Turn left at Orion? Is that the best book for beginners?

Sunny weather today in Sutton coldfield so I'm sure that tonight I might get lucky.

I've heard a lot about a Barlow lens. Do I need one?

Can I build my own dew filter? Does anyone know to do this?

Loads of us have made dew filters - most people use a camping mat, cut to size and rolled up - I used some radiator insulation sheet that I had lying about - works a treat - do a search of the threads for "dew shield" you're bound to find something
