Hello from Bolsover


Recommended Posts

Been lurking here for a while and it seems a nice place to be so if you guys will have me, I'd like

to stay for a while. :)

Name's Philip, 59 in a few weeks time, an ex television service engineer forced out of work and into poverty

by a long running back problem. :lol:

Been interested in astronomy for three years now, the first year using scopes made from cheap optics from

Surplus Shed and during the last couple of years I have collected some "proper scopes" including a

Skywatcher 130mm F5 reflector on a CG-5 mount. An Antares 70mm mac for grab and go and finally my latest,

a Revelation 8" DOB which I got a few days ago.

Light pollution is a problem here but it doesn't stop me enjoying the sky from my backyard. 8)
