Hi and welcome from me too - bins are a great way to start - have you downloaded Stellarium yet? - A great free planetarium which will help you navigate your way around!


Indeed i have! In fact i've just spent half the night trying to put in my own panorama picture of Edinburgh, to no avail yet. :D

That means i've had no time to try out my new binos, though it has been a bit cloudy tonight, only Vega visable.

Hi B/Wboy and welcome to SGL :D

A simple camera tripod will help a lot with the 15x70's - save a lot of arm ache. And I second downoading Stellarium - excellent free tool for object finding. Look up the "Beehive" cluster for one of your first objects - it's smashing in binocs :rolleyes:
