Hello from sunny Cheltenham!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Just joined up...I've recently bought my 1st telescope,Skywatcher 130PM.Been doing plenty of studying all about Planets,constellations,DSO's etc...and i can't wait to take the tele out for a good vewing as soon as the weather permits.Unfortunately,i live in an apartment (west facing) in the town centre so my views aren't all that good.However,planning on finding a star party or two if there's any around my area.

I look forward to being a member of this rather fantastic forum.

Laterz

Welcome aboard Paolo! That scope should be easy enough to stick in the car and get to some dark skies. :D

Anyway welcome aboard and may your weather head north a bit.

Hi Paolo, and welcome to the forum.

Cheltenham is where my ancestors lived, circa 1810 to 1860.

Thank you all for your kind "Welcome's".......

Managed to get the moon in for the 1st time from my front window last night.....Marvellous!!! I even offered up my camera to the eyepiece and took a shot with rather surprisingly good results considering the inevitable hand shaking...Revelation eyepiece set on the way plus camera adapter...Looking forward to their imminent arrival...

Casus,

The "sunny" was a sarcastic wish :sunny:

Viking,

I went to the CAS meeting last Saturday.Really nice,welcoming bunch of people...I shall certainly become a member in December...I take it you're local?!!
