Good evening from Ireland

Recommended Posts

Hello every body,

Just joined the forum as a total novice. Just bought a Skycatcher Explorer 130P in the hope it will be a good start scope. I live in an almost dark sky part of SW Ireland. I was overwhelmed by the choice of  telescopes, but hope i have made a good choice to begin with. Hoping to ask lots of questions and getting some advice. 

Regards

Slingshot

Welcome to the forum. Living in a dark area is a great bonus. I hope you enjoy the skies and the forum.

Hi Slingshot and a warm welcome to the forum.  The Sky Watcher 130P is ceretainly a good place to start.  I have been to your part of the country (Co. Cork), a lovely area I have to say, you are so lucky.  Good luck & clear skies!

Welcome to SGL. I too am currently based in SW Ireland, not far from Baltimore. The skies are truly spectacular when the weather permits.   I’ve just temporarily adopted a 130p from my bro in law while his house gets some work done and it’s very good!

Hi Slingshot. Welcome aboard SGL, and to astronomy. Wanna swap your lovely dark skies for my light polluted ones?

Hello and welcome to the forum.  A dark sky is worth many inches of telescope aperture. Of course you also need clear skies, here’s hoping you have many.
