Hi everyone, just joined the forums.  Thought I'd introduce myself; I'm from Neath and new to astronomy.  Getting to grips with a Newtonian for the first time!  Not sure I'd be able to get to Blaenavon very often but would be interested to hear what is going on in the South Wales area.

Hello, and welcome to SGL and the Group !

Hi everyone, Im from Caerphilly , and have just found this group.  I am one of those people that has read what I need to do, but have never yet had the chance to use my scope properly, mostly due to weather and time not being nice to each other!  Would love to meet others in the group whenever there is a meeting.

Hello, and Welcome !

Hopefully those of us in Astronomical hibernation will reawake soon as the dark nights approach, and the weather starts to cooperate. Look forward to meeting you, and catching up with some old familiar faces.  :smiley:

I have a skywatcher quatro8 ota on a eq5 pro. If you wouldn't mind, I would jump at the chance to go through polar alignment etc. I live in Mornington Meadows.  Sorry for the late reply, been away.

I'm hoping to meet a few of you too.  Let's hope for clear skies this winter.

Hi. Sorry for the very late reply, it's been a bit of a mad month with all the kids off.   Thanks for the offer of help, I will probably take you up on it at some point.  Just now, I don't know what I don't know! ?

Hi pal, that is not a problem. I am away until the 7th of September so we can go through your setup ( scope collimation, balancing, polar alignment etc). 

Do you have Facebook, we could arrange something via that if you like?

Cheers

I have facebook, so that would be easier I guess.  Would be great to get my kit sorted out ready for the winter.  Thanks for the offer, I really appreciate it.
