Hello from SW France

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to astronomy having just purchased my first refractor telescope which fits in nicely with my photographic interests as I can use it for terrestrial use also. I live in what is called the "astronomic black triangle" between the Dordogne and Lot rivers, 350m above sea level we have a wonderful unpolluted view of the night skies. Hope to gain more knowledge through interacting with the other members in the forums.

Greetings from south east France! I chose this region entirely on the grounds of its astronomical potential and love it.

All the best,

Olly

Hi Dave and a warm welcome to SGL.

Beautiful scenery, good food and wine and dark skies to boot - sounds like heaven to me.

Happy Stargazing and enjoy your Astro journey.

Hi and welcome!

Not jealous of your location. I'm not. Seriously. That triangle sounds cool; I'm from the cloudy triangle in the East Midlands. It's quite similar apart from the cloud, atmosphere and light pollution.  :)

all the best mate

Chris
