Hello from Shetland

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Ryan from Lerwick in Shetland.

Been interested in astronomy for many years, up till now have only had a pair of Helios 11 x 80 binoculars. Always planned on getting a scope and with Jupiter approaching opposition and a timely discount being offered by Telescope House, I decided to order a Skyliner 300p Flex Tube Dobsonian.

Have picked up a few tips from the forum already.

Looking forward to getting the scope and pointing it towards the Jovian system!

Hi Ryan,

A very warm welcome to SGL. I expect you'll put your scope to good use with some nice dark skies.

Hi, from another newcomer in Somerset.

Should be pretty dark up there (and you get the benefit of long nights).

Welcome to SGL Ryan. I'm guessing light pollution is not too much of an issue for you - just the same cloud cover as the rest of us!

Many thanks for all the welcome messages. Dark skies have returned to Shetland (it doesn't really get dark mid-summer at 60 deg N!) so I'm hoping for some clear skies when I get the new scope.
