This is kind of dumb, but so am I. I've noticed that some people have a little signature or excerpt that is always at the end of every post describing their telescopes or equipment and wondered how I would add one. Excuse my ignorance, I am very new to this site

Click on your name at the top right, click account settings, and then you will see "signature" option on the left.

Go into account settings, then under signature you can set yourself one. There are limitations to length I believe though.

g'day Mr Timn,

Being a moderator I'm embarrassed to say I'm not sure, but I seem to recall something like ten posts before a signature can be edited. I will try and find out

Yes from recent experience having passed that milestone I can confirm 10 posts is what you need, then you can create a signature :) .

Cheers, Magnus

Not showing on mobile is intentional and makes the site work better on smaller screens / slower processors.

      Hello everyone, 
      As you can probably tell I’m brand new to the community. While I’ve been passionate about space related topics for my whole life, I’ve finally taken the leap and I’m about buy a simple astrophotography rig. Ive done a fair bit of research and, like many, I’ve decided that the William Optics Zenithstar 61 APO refractor is best suited for my situation. I plan to use my canon 600D/T3i as the main imaging camera and I also plan to use the Skywatcher Star Adventurer as a tracking mount for this scope. However I have a few questions:
      1: I seem to be confused about how I should connect my DSLR to the Z61. As far as I’m aware, all I need is a T-ring and the WO Flat 61 Field flattener and I should be good to go. Is that correct? 
      2: will I need a dovetail bar to mount the Z61 to the star adventurer? Or can I directly mount the z61 to the base of the star adventurer? (This was demonstrated by Trevor Jones from astrobackyard with his Z61 and the ioptron Skyguider Pro.)
      Sorry for such a long thread; I’d just hate to finally get all my gear together and find out that some gear is incompatible. 
      Thanks for the help!

      Okay so I chose to take a year to decide which career to study, I've always been interested in physics and astronomy but I think I will go on and pick Chemistry. Any tips or ideas on what to do after?

      Hi guys and gals,
      I recently purchased a pair of Nikon Aculon 10-22×50 Zoom binoculars for around $179 and I'm pretty disappointed with them.  I live in Semi-rural northeast Texas and was looking for a good pair of binoculars for a casual stargazer like myself.  I thought these would be the perfect pair, I was wrong. The field of view is pretty small and the focus is annoying.  The view is like tunnel vision at 10× and too dark at 22×. 
      Do any of you individuals have any helpful suggestions on what exactly I should get that suites my individual needs?
      I am looking for something that won't break the bank (under $300), has a large field of view, would allow me to see the moons of Jupiter, the Andromeda Galaxy, starclusters, nebulae, and maybe some of the Messier Objects?  Also, without a tripod needed. I would like something  that is comfortable on the eye and easy to hold.
      Its asking a lot, I know. But I'm hoping some of you who are more knowledgeable on the subject would be able to help me out?
      Thanks.

      Hello, I'm very new to the practice of astronomy and my interest is with deep sky objects, I very much prefer "goto" type telescopes. Im just looking for a decent set up for visual observations of dso's and I have no idea where to start to look, please help!  
       
      ( 500$ budget )

      Greetings stargazers,
       I'm considering buying a new telescope (my first telescope) for astrophotography, and some visual astronomy. 
       But I can't decide which type should I get. I mainly want to photograph deep sky objects. After testing some variations in Stellarium I am worried that some deep sky objects won't fit into the aperture of an 8" reflector.
      I'm wondering which type should I get. And also I'm worried that I won't be able to photograph anything with a small refractor because I live near a city. 
      I am also open to any suggestions for a beginner astrophotography telescope. (around 800$ would be perfect)
      Thank you:)
      I apologise if I made any writing mistakes.
      Edit: I'm considering buying a Bresser Messier 203/800 or a William Optics Zenithstar 61 but I'm still open to any suggestions.
