Hi All,

Well I just landed myself with a brand new etx 105 pe. :hello2: Don't know anything about astronomy or the telescope.. not even sure why I got it :hello2:. ( Ok I admit it, I watched the "Wonders of the universe with professor cox" and I was hooked.

The boxes are sat in front of me and I'm not even sure I want to open them :hello2: as I know I'm going to be on a long and painful road.

Gotta feeling I'm gonna be a right ole pain in the butt in this lounge ;)

Regards.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

No pain no gain as they say, so the quicker you get started the quicker those questions will be coming in. I just want to reassure you that they won't have packed Brian Cox in one of those boxes!:hello2::D

Clear skies for your first night's observing

Take it one step at a time and it will all make sense to you. Being part of this forum along with a couple of books will help you greatly. May I suggest "Turn Left at Orion" and downloading Stellarium.

Good luck with this new passion. Not a passion? Don't worry, it will be.

Thanks for the welcome guys :D Well I suppose I should open the boxes they've been sat there for 24 hours.. After reading a lot of threads I've realised that I can't do what I wanted to with this scope, but not to worry.

Regards.
