Hello from Dunstable

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, my name is Ian. I've been fascinated in the night sky since I was a little boy. Around 2 years back my wife bought me my first telescope, it was a Celestron 70AZ. Excellent little scope but now I find myself wanting more :D

I am interested in learning some astrophotography as well so I have just ordered a new SkyWatcher 200PDS, it should arrive today sometime!

Anyway, look forward to speaking with you all.

By for now.

Hi Ian,

A very warm welcome to SGL, very nice new set up you have, it will certainly be well ahead in performance compared to the 70AZ, clear skies soon, enjoy the forum.
