Hello From South Somerset


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, found the site yesterday while at work (I know I should be working but we were a bit quiet)

Just checked my tracking number for a parcel of goodies expected to land this am.

My very first telescope!

Good Morming Keith

A warm welcome to the SGL forum :wave: .

Enjoy your new telescope - don't forget to post a first light report on SGL :thumbright:

What are the skies like in South Somerset - nice and dark or do you suffer from light pollution?

Merry Christmas and Dark Skies

Many thanks for such a warm welcome. I'm actually in a little village near Crewkerne, no street lights and inky black skys. Took it out in the back garden last night just for a quick peek but not got the finder scope all lined up yet so just had a quick look around...amazing, sure blows the binos out of the water. Hopefully later today will get the finder lined up then try a few targetted objects.

Anybody got any suggestions for my first targetted views?
