New to Astronomy from Cornwall

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm new to astronomy but have had an interest for some time.  Dusted off a few books, got a nice second-hand pair of binoculars and have been out and about trying to pick up the stars and planets.  Have had a bit of luck and some clear skies in "Sunny" Cornwall, UK, but thought that I'd get myself a telescope and try to get a better look.  Got the new scope but not the weather to use it.

Have been reading some of the forums and topics and this is a great site with amazing info and friendly advice, thanks.

Looking forward to joining in with some of the discussions when I learn a bit more.

Cheers

Which scope did you get?

The bigger the scope the worse and longer the weather will be.

Which bit of Cornwall, several people are down that way.

Hi Ronin,

Got myself a Skywatcher Explorer 130P which had a couple of lenses with it.  Just purchased a Barlow x 2 to increase things a bit but haven't used that yet.  I'm in North Cornwall, Bodmin, which means that I've been up on the moor a couple of times that have given some very clear skies within a few miles of home.  Would be good to catch up with like minded souls in the area.

Cheers
