Hello from Newcaslte-Under-Lyme :)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone  :hello:

Wow it's been a while since I joined a new forum!

So... Im from Newcastle-under-Lyme and I have recently bought my first telescope and managed to use it properly for the first time last night.

I amazingly saw jupiter and it's 4 moons and now just want clear skies all the time!

I've been interested in astronomy since I was very young, I scoured the internet looking for advice on which telescope to buy and it seemed that Stargazers Lounge came up all the time when offering advise and guidance and it is thanks to SGL that I changed my mind from a Celestron Firstscope to a Skywatcher Heritage - SO glad I did!!

I now realise just how much more there is to learn about observing - will there be enough clear skies to learn everything?!

I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to taking my new 'scope to my mums caravan in Wales next week as there is NO light pollution and when its a clear night, it is extrordinary with the naked eye, let alone my new toy :icon_bounce:

I look forward to conversing with everything in the forums!

Hi (newbie here too). I got to play with a Heritage 130 recently, it's a fine piece of kit. Enjoy!
