Advertorials

Please no more advertorials - those adverts from less scrupulous companies that are designed to mislead you into believing that they are actual articles.
These are banned in many western countries - unfortunately in the UK they fall into a grey area of the law (apparently simply writing "advertisement feature" at the top of the page, in matching font, seems to be enough to get around it).
Is this really the sort of thing we expect from a BBC magazine?

Hi and welcome.

It's not really a BBC magazine any more. It was sold off (along with the other magazines) a few years back.
Possibly they pay the BBC to use the programme name, but it's not part of the BBC as such.
Do feel welcome to stick around, though. The more the merrier!
Scopes: Meade 8" SCT, Skywatcher 127mm Mak, Raffle winner of SW ST80
For imaging: Pentax K5, Asda webcam, Star Adventurer (new toy)
For companionship: Mid Cheshire Astronomical Group.
