Hello fellow cumbrians, there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity in the group but i thought i'd just say alright anyway. I was wondering too if there is anything 'local' i can check out eventually, astronomy shops, dark area's ect?

Alright mate. Yeah I found the cockermouth club on the web, it will be a while before i venture to a club though, i want to find my way around a scope and the sky first.

I got myself the celestron powerseeker 127eq a few week ago, i wish i'd joined this froum first though as i would have ended up with something better from the sponser site FLO. But never mind, it will do me for learning on.

I know this is an old topic, but as far as I know (second hand information....) there is a telescope/astronomy shop in Kendal, or at least I have been told there is. Haven't gone so far as trying to find any info on it yet though so may well be false info.

if there isn't one in Kendal, there is one in Lancaster (Lamberts) i think it's called, they do bino's and skywatcher scopes, i got a sky watcher catalogue from the m a while ago,Tim
