Hi Tim & welcome.

I'm not to far away from you & I've been dabbling in astronomy for just over a year now. I've enjoyed imaging planets & a few DSO's although I'm by no means an expert.

I'm off to a dark site & probably meeting up with a couple of other guys from the central midlands stargazers tonight & tomorrow. If you join their group & fancy taking a trip I'm sure they will make you feel very welcome.

I generally don't bother setting up the scope at home as there's to much LP here unless I'm doing some planetary imaging but it's nice to meet up with some other folk & look through other scopes.

Hello to everyone . I just started Astronomy again after 5 year break. I used to be one this forum ages ago and forgot my old user name . I got pair of Celestrons 20+80 binoculars and just ordered pair 10+42 outland lx for when im on travels on Motorbike . I feel like a newbie as I forgotten a lot of Astro terms and where to look in the night sky.
