Hello !

Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone.

Trying to get back into stargazing and found this place a week ago.

Thought I'd join in the fun.

Anyone in the north west know of any reasonably dark(ish) sites ?

Cheers, Andy

Hi Andy and welcome. Dark(ish) sites eh? Well deepest Dordogneshire has pretty good dark skies but it's a bit far to come. In NW England, possibly in upper ribbledale if that's not too far.

Hi Gregbwfc,

Hey, thanks to everyone for the welcome.

Been interested in what's "up there" since I was a kid.

Got a telescope a few years ago and haven't really made the most of it.

Don't know why but I suddenly feel the need to dust it off and get out there again.

I'd never claim to be an amateur astronomer,just someone who wants to take a closer look (and hopefully some photos too).

Hi Andy and welcome to the forum.

So do the initials BWFC stand for Bolton Wanderers Football Club or am I showing my ignorance once again.:D

Clear skies

Hi JBM, yes that's what they stand for,not great viewing at the mo :D.

I'm on a few different forums (fora?) and am too lazy to invent a different username.

That and I'd forget them.
