Hey everyone

Recommended Posts

A bit of back ground on myself. I have been interested in Astronomy and photography ever since my dad ran a camera shop when I was a small boy and at the moment I am on the Scottish border studying at University but I am based in Cambridgeshire.

I started off with a small Skywatcher refracting telescope years ago and was immediately hooked until I had finally saved up for the Celestron reflector I have recently invested in. I had no idea a mount was also going to set me back a similar amount! :) I am very inexperienced with the new kit so bare with me...

I joined the sky at night forums from my subscription to the magazine, but feel it would be a better idea to use this giant archive of knowledge and friendly people on stargazers lounge.

Clear skies and mince pies!

Hi Adam and welcome to the forum. You need to be careful mentioning mince pies on here - you're likely to get stampeded :):D

You're absolutely correct about this forum being a useful resource and also the fact that you can question further what you've learnt - impossible with a book. The forum is also about sharing too whether its tips, tricks or experience - invaluable! So this 'give and take' is what makes it all work.

Wishing you clear skies for your observations

James

I don't like mince pies, but give me a nice steak and kidney pudding instead :)
