Hi Mike,

Welcome to the forum, are you new to astronomy or just new to the forum?  I think there are plenty of members from around your area. You will find this a very friendly and helpful place so feel free to ask anything. I am pretty new to it all but found this place a real help.

Hi guys, thanks for the warm welcome. I have been into astronomy for a good couple of years now and have a Skywatcher Explorer 130P SynScan telescope. Managed to grab a few shots of Jupiter / Saturn and plenty of the moon, what to look for next is the question....any advice ?

Hello mike.

My name is Wayne and I am from down the a66 at Middlesbrough.

Just joined this site I have a skywatcher explorer 130 EQ2 telescope, this is all new to me and getting to know how to use my telescope from a £30 telescope from Argos to this can be difficult to use, I always enjoyed space ect when I was young and finally decided to follow it up now.

Right now I only use my telescope in my back garden as I want to get use to moving it correctly and searching correctly also.

I have made basic mistakes while using it e.g using my white light instead of a red light and moving the telescope incorrectly also but I am learning and hopefully I will get the hang of this before the winter comes as the dark night are longer.
