Telescope in loft

Recommended Posts

Hi again, many thanks for all your warm welcomes. Still waiting for the sky to clear but in the meantime could anyone tell me if it is possible to put your scope in the loft and view through an open velux window. I think I have read that you should not site your scope in a bedroom and view through an open window because of the heat difference, but as a loft is not heated would this be ok. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

It's not ideal but better than not using it at all. As for the amount of heat turbulence - only one way to find out. My first view of Mars was through an open window - it was a bit like looking at something in an aquarium but it thrilled me nonetheless.
