Hello From Devon!!!!

Postby ariel » Wed Aug 16, 2006 10:13 pm

Hallo there

I'm Ariel. I'm 14 and a keen astronomer. I'm looking to be an astronomer and I'm interested in solar observing. I really want an H alpha telescope but at the moment I'm going to have to settle for a solar filter on my Sky Hawk 1145. My skies arent bad compared to some I've seen. I live not far from dartmoor and the view from there is AMAZING!!! I'm home educated and I've just started studieing for my GCSE's.

Bye for now, Ariel

Hi Ariel, and welcome to the forum.

I've just returned from a two week stay in North and South Devon, and Dartmoor does offer some really nice dark skies.

Hi Ariel,

Welcome to the forum, from another Devonian!

The dark skies of Dartmoor offer superb seeing and celestial views indeed.

Hope to hear about some of your observations soon!

To me astronomy is looking up and thinking "What the heck is going on up there!!"
