Hello all!!


Recommended Posts

hi everyone

I'm Jim from Hollywood in Birmingham

Been a casual star spotter for a few years, but recently got a lot more interested (mostly thats to the star walks app on my Iphone!!)

bought myself a 80x800 Refelctor Scope yesterday (Ok not the best in the world but for the money i'm not complaining!) and spent hours last night in the freezing cold looking at the moon and Jupiter, was amazing!!

So, I'll be spending more time outside in the evenings now and seeing whats out there! :)

I also want to start taking a few photo's of the stars with my DSLR, so there will no doubt be some questions from me on that front!!

this forum will definetly be a big help!!!

Hi Jim and welcome to the forum.

Astrophotography can be practiced at all levels but like so many things, you get out what you put in and in this instance, that will include equipment and in particular, a good mount. It might be worth a post over at the imaging section to get an idea of what you will need should you be thinking of upgrading your equipment.
