Hello from St Albans


Recommended Posts

A little introduction for my first post on SGL.

I’ve always been fascinated by Cosmology and decided this was the year to invest in connecting a little more personally with the Universe. So my interest is mainly galaxies / nebulas / clusters / supernovae and I really want to push how far away I can truly see out into the universe – upto hundreds of millions of light years with darkier skies I hope?

I’ve spent two months researching what I want to really study and see, and what scope/equipment to start with. This is the thank you part, because SGL has been a really great help on so many different fronts.

Anyway the Skywatcher 300P FlexTube GOTO is days away from arriving from FLO and I already have a July target list, but realise that the summer months and this weather may dampen my DSO opportunities until September. I’ve also looked into the closest darker sky sites in Cambs/Suffolk.

I will post my first light report in the next week or so.

Thanks again for all the SGL support.
