Hello from Leicester

Hi everyone,

As everyone in this section, am very new to looking at the stars. Always looked up, but never really understood it properly and really want to learn more.

The GF bought me a telescope for my birthday in July (seems to have been cloudy ever since though, ha ha). But did see the ISS for the first time last night and after following #meteorwatch on twitter all weekend, I saw my first Perseid meteor shower, which was great.

Any guidence gratfully recieved.

Happy gazing guys 'n' gals.

Dennis.

Hi, Dennis, and welcome to SGL.

If you managed to see Perseids, you've got off to a good start :)

HI Dennis and welcome to the forum. You didn't say what scope the GF got you? Useful to get hold of a red torch and a decent star atlas to know where stuff is. Could also think about downloading a free planetarium software program called 'Stellarium' - good bit of kit.

Clear skies
