Inevitable as they couldn't compete for astro with the likes of Flo and Tring especially where discounts are concerned.

Neil, I use the HC not the Tablet and have found if I don't disable the Mount WIFI when on the Top Patio ( just outside dining room window) House WIFI interferes with Handset control, ((on the bottom Patio no problem at all.))

I have the Skywatcher Startravel 102mm f5 Refractor on GOTO. I have just started using it with my OSC Infinity and it is ok, do get some colour fringing but I am not too bothered about it.

I was quite happy with the Focus, but may get a Bhatinov Mask for the Frac to sharpen it up

Saw Lee at Green witch today, he gave me a Bahtinov Mask for the 102mm Freebie, smashing guy, wished him all the luck in his new venture at Altair.

Hope everyone enjoys the meeting I will be on the isle of Skye for it

      Hi all.. 
      New to astronomy,  bought my son a cheap telescope for Xmas and have enjoyed viewing with him so just bought myself a 250mm dob. Pleased to say it arrived today so started off with a bit of moon viewing.  Must admit I've had a lovely evening! 
      Can see me investing quite a bit of time and money into this. Look forward to hearing from some of you members as time goes on.

      Hello everyone. I've been lurking here for a while, thought I'd sign up and say hello. My name's Tom, I am serious but you can call me Shirley if you like.
      I've had a telescope (skywatcher 150 dob) for about 7 years, it saw some use before I went to university to study physics, but I left it at home. (Naively thought there wouldn't be a great deal to see from the city.) It hadn't seen much use since, until January this year when I took it out under a nearly full moon to show my then lass the Orion neb and the Andromeda galaxy. Since then I must've been making up lost time because I've been out in the garden almost every clear night, and I've found my collection of astro bits and bobs has been growing at an alarming rate.
      So I think it's about time I dropped by to say Hi
