Thought I would join this forum as you seem like an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable bunch! I live in the north of England as you can tell from the thread title inherited an 8" Meade lx90 - the original one with all its quirks ? with the s4000 8-24mm ep. Been using it intermittently for a year or so but only just decided to spend some money on it to get better views - new 10mm and 32mm baader eyepieces and upgraded to a baader prism star diagonal. I am interested in dso's and planets and in astro photography - just because i love to share! I have tried in the past with limited success.

Looking forward to discussing the stars and all things related with  you all.

2star offers sound advice re joining a club. Can save you a lot of money as you can talk to folks who have been there and often try out kit without the commitment

Welcome Craig, joining SGL has certainly been a major  plus when getting back into this hobby after a ~20 year break.
