Hello and a very warm welcome from me too :smiley: I love your enthusiasm for the planets - a telescope will really feed this! Enjoy.

Whoa, thanks for the warm welcome everyone, can't wait to start learning from you all :)

@nodecaff I don't know why, but sometimes I get spooked out when I think about the scale of things. Once I was jet skiiing in the Atlantic and got spooked knowing that there was about a mile of water underneath me haha. The distance to planets is just incomprehensible.

Here's a really neat interactive I came across a few weeks ago: http://www.distancetomars.com/

Click on the down arrow and it'll take you to Mars...crazy. There's another site out there that takes you as far as the Oort Cloud, but you have to sit there for quite a while...
