newbie update

Recommended Posts

Well, have had my scope for two weeks now and in that time I have had five sessions of viewing, four from the light polluted confines of my garden (i live in town) and once when i drove out into the countyside, I have looked at Jupiter more than anything else although when I was out of town I was amazed that wherever I pointed the scope i got an eyefull of stars, didnt know what they were called but at the time i didnt really care, it just blew me away. got home in time for a couple of pints down my local, must have looked a bit odd sitting on my own in the corner still with my two layers of clothing and furry trapper hat on, bemused look on my face as if I had actually just visited the stars, which in a roundabout way, I had...

Next up is to set my scope up properly, connect the motor drive and actually research what i`m looking at, then It`ll be taking pics, one step at a time tho, the stars aint going anywhere anytime soon....
