A HELLO FROM CLOUDY GLASGOW

Recommended Posts

HELLO,

MY NAME IS JOHN AND I LIVE IN THE SUBURBS OF CLOUDY :cool: (AND WET) :wink: GLASGOW. I'VE BEEN INTERESTED IN ASTRONOMY FOR MANY YEARS BUT AM NEITHER VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE NOR SKILLED! I ONLY GET A CHANCE TO OBSERVE OCCASIONALLY DUE TO A COMBINATION OF THE WEATHER, WORK AND OTHER COMMITMENTS.

I HAVE AN OMC 200 AND A WO ZENITHSTAR 105 ON A SPHINX MOUNT. WOULD LIKE TO GET AN OBSERVATORY SO I CAN MAKE THE MOST OF THE FEW OBSERVING OPPORTUNITIES THERE ARE - BUT IT WILL HAVE TO WAIT TILL I MOVE HOUSE! I'VE TRIED A LITTLE WEBCAM IMAGING BUT AM A COMPLETE BEGINNER.

CAME UPON THIS SITE BY CHANCE, AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO LEARNING A LOT!

A warm welcome to SGL John. As far as wt and wild weather goes, I think we have all had more than our share of it the last few weeks.

We can just hope we get a brilliant astronomical conducive winter this time around.

You could not have found a better place to enhance your astronomy. There's loads of friendly and genned up folks on this site.

Enjoy your stay John.

Ron. :wink:

Welcome to SGL John. Please do ask questions as there's nothing much to do other than answer the questions or wait until somebody else does (my favourite method).

I'd be interested in finding out how you get on with the big Mak. as I had an OMC140 and was very impressed with it.

Hi John

Welcome to SGL. I'm in suburban Glasgow too and the weather has been terrible for observing (when is it ever good?). Being further North as well, doesn't help.

Enjoy the forum.

Hi John, and welcome aboard.

Finding this forum 'by chance' was a lucky event for you, its one of the best.

BTW, in 'forum speak', typing in capital letters, is equivalent to shouting, and generally used only to emphasise at particular point or word :wink:

Well maybe after a few pints of 'heavy' Jamie :p

However, whenever I've been to Glasgow, a nicer and quieter bunch of people, you couldn't meet :evil::clouds2:

Hi John,

Good to have someone else from Glasgow as an SGL member. There is an active Astro Soc in Glasgow and you would be welcome to join us and come on our rain swept observing sessions :wink: If you want to know about the Astro Soc of Glasgow, give me a PM and I will put you in touch with "El Presidente" - or you could "google" it. We host the BAA out-of-London weekend at the end of August, so we may see you then.

SGL is a great Forum, friendly and helpful - lots of knowledgeable people willing to give of their experience.

By the way - it is clear just now - pity it is light all night at this time of year.

Tom

Another welcome here from nearby, I'm in sunny Bathgate a few miles to the east of you. I too need to move house and build an observatory, and while I'm dreaming I'll make it a huge house in the Caribbean with a 32" Obsession on a custom go-to mount. :cool::wink:
