Hi and welcome to the forum !

Big binoculars are a great tool to see the night sky with :thumbright:

I'm from Portishead myself so not too far from you. Hoping for some clear patches tonight but the clouds seem to be winning !

Hi there,

welcome to the forum.  Bins are a great way to find your way around the sky and a tripod means you can spend some time on the detail of your finds.

You could do a lot worse than checking out this excellent newsletter.

Hi, rmw, and welcome to SGL.

Binoculars are a great way to get started in this hobby and 12x70s are a reasonable size. You will discover a lot with them and "learning the sky" will give you knowledge that will stand you in good stead for life in this hobby.

Enjoy the journey.

Hello and welcome to SGL, you have chosen the best way to start, bins give you the opportunity to

learn the night sky, I did the same thing, the Binocular Sky News Letter, is superb, lots of targets for the month.

hope you enjoy your time with us, see you around the forums.

Clear Sky's.

@Pete123 - Hello and welcome to the forum !

Could I suggest that you start a new thread with your questions in our "Getting Started Equipment and Advice" section rather than here in this welcome thread ?

Here is a link to that section:

https://stargazerslounge.com/forum/186-getting-started-equipment-help-and-advice/

I think you will get a lot more responses to your specific questions there :)

Thanks.
