Haven't used my scope since April....

Recommended Posts

...and I'm reeaaally missing it!!!

The trouble is I do shiftwork so often have to go to bed early, and I've been so busy in the last couple of months with various stuff going on, and decorating being done in the house. But I'm hoping for normality to return very soon, and to resume learning my way around the nightsky.

Sometimes it's really fab being a beginner in a hobby, because each viewing session is full of 'firsts' - first time seeing this, first time for that, and so on! :D

I really envy you for that. There was something very magical about the first few years.

Im the same, bought a scope at Christmas and havent had it out nearly half as much as I would like. Long work days and light nights mean it must be a couple of months since its been used :p Im still buying new things though :D

Thanks all! I'm on evening shift the next two days but after that I hope to get the scope out again!

Any current viewing recommendations for a beginner? I'm equally interested in planets and deep sky. I understand I need to wait some time yet for Jupiter unless I want to be up at 3am! haha! :D
