Hi from Carlisle

I have been interested in navigation all my life, this interest culminated in becoming skipper of sailing vessels far and wide. Along this journey I have been fortunate enough to see the stars mid ocean on a moonless night and will never forget how stunning it is to be in truly dark place with hours of dark adaptation.

 Anyone interested in navigation cannot fail to see the historical links with the night sky hence an interest in astronomy was slowly formed. As my interest has been from a navigational point of view and only recently have I looked through a home made telescope (a converted Novaflex 400mm Camera lens) to see the heavens in more detail and I am really enjoying myself.

 I have logged in here at SGL because every time I search online for astronomy info there is always a link to here with good folk willing to help. I have read a lot of great stuff on here and say thanks to all who have contributed to unknowingly contributed to expanding my knowledge of all things to do with stargazing.

Regards Steve

Welcome to the forum. I can't offer any advice as I have far less experience than you, but you've come to the right place for anything astronomical!
