Recently I made my own website based on astronomy, and I have just posted my 2nd post.

I would really appreciate if you checked it out, and gave me some feedback and maybe even some tips and tricks for making a website.

The layout is excellent indeed. Very tidy.

Hopefully you will add observation reports as Your website develops.

I`Ve bookmarked it, and intend to keep an eye on it.

 I got the same book btw :).

Amazingly well done so far! :thumbsup:

Do keep writing. It was quite interesting to read. I think you are a bright young man. Bump up this thread when you write up your experiences on the blog, it will be interesting to find out how things develop for you.

You most certainly deserves lots of feedback for Your work and effort from an astronomyforum like this.

I think everybody in here are more than happy to see youngsters like you take such an interest in Astronomy,

and never underestimate Your already great contribution to this forum either.

great wee site!! very crisp and professional looking but still has a relaxed fell to it! well done and couldn't agree more about starting a blog and sticking up observing reports.

p.s I must say I am quiet jealous of your kit!!

      Well, this happened to me last night. I was packing up at around 11 (a combination of chilly breeze, being a bit tired anyway, and the sky being a bit hazy). I was at a spot (the Cerne Abbas Viewpoint), where, on average, I must have been at least once a month over the past five years, when I saw a car approaching, fast, from the direction of the village. Something about it made be stop getting into my car and watch it, and, as I sort of expected, it swerved quickly off the main road, and swept into the car park, pulling to a stop right behind my car, blocking me in. A police officer got out and immediately a spotlight in the roof was shone in my face!
      The police officer asked me what I was doing, to which I replied 'stargazing', and opened the back door to show her the dob across the back seat. Immediately, the atmosphere changed. She said, 'oh ... would you look at that! See much? See anything nice? This is a good spot, isn't it? Well you can't be too careful, what with this being a secluded spot and all ...' Anyway, she then asked me for my name, and where I lived, and that was it ... she got back in the car and they left!
      I've been left feeling very odd ever since. Clearly they were on a mission, and came right to the car park (it definitely wasn't a case of just passing by and noticing me). Someone definitely called them, having decided I was up to no good!
      Anyway, as I said, it feels odd now, the police having my name and address as a result.

      Hello!
      So I need little bit help to make my solar outreach events better.
      Usually most of my solarsolevents events have been for schools and little bit for general public  But now I am going more towards college students and arranging events specific for solar observation. (It used to be more like complimentary with night sky observations)
      Since I am not a science student (learning physics by myself only), I don't have exact idea about what topics should I cover in theory. (Also what should I learn as well)
      Usually I take a projected image of the sun using my 90mm refractor and do H-alpha observation using my Lunt 50mm telescope. As for theory, I cover little bit about nuclear fusion, sun as a magnet, little bit about solar spectrum. If time allows then I refer Sun's images like magnetogram and all to have a better idea.
      Any suggestions would be helpful! Because it looks like I am still the only one here taking H-alpha observationsobservation.
      P.s. I will be putting up this question in solarchat as well. But more help will be better!
      Thanks!
      EDIT : currently I am thinking about adding a small radio telescope. Also, looking out for something to make so that I can see the solar spectrum much better.

      Hi
      My recently acquired CCD imaging kit is all very lovely, except, I don't want to keep dismantling it in order for the scope to fit back in it's case and stored indoors between sessions.  i thought I'd come up with the perfect solution, but *apparently* leaving it on the dining table isn't a viable option .  So what do you guys do?  Put up with disassembly, make/buy a bigger box, or something way more clever that I haven't yet considered?

      Hey guys
      it is getting really cold and this is the first time I'm using laptop in the field for imaging, so I have no idea how to use the laptop in subzero temperatures.
      Last year when i was checking something in Stellarium, my screen just froze and did not work until i had it warmed. I get that it is Liquid Crystal, and will freeze in subzero temps. So how can i use it in the filed, all night long, without freezing it to death?
      Sorry for bad English
      Regards
