Good Evening

Postby TonyW » Fri Jan 01, 2016 12:10 am

Hi all, just registered on the forum after getting my first telescope for christmas (not bad at almost 42 years old). Needless to say I've wanted to get into astronomy in more depth for a long time, and hopefully expand my photography into astrophotography as well.
So, I'm just starting out, I've got the Bresser Skylux EL, which I'm just getting to grips with, slowly to be fair, but I guess there is a lot to learn, especially with finding where things are to look at.
Hopefully I'll soon get the hang of it.

Hello Tony

I think you will get a head start with all the information and advice here. I would say that knowing were to look is second only to knowing how to operate your telescope. Even the best telescope is pretty boring if it is pointing at mundane objects. If you get stuck for something to look at - call in here and ask !
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
