Hi All

Pleased to "meet" you all.

Some great info on the forums and loving the magazine.

Recent convert to the world of astronomy as I was bought a Celestron 70 refractor for christmas. Since moved up a few inches with the purchase of a Skywatcher 300p auto dob. Yes, I know I have propably missed a few steps on the updgrade path.

Love to be out in the cold night air looking at the planets at the minute, Jupiter is a fantastic sight, though I think I have missed some tricks as even with a 5mm Hyperion eyepiece it still looks pretty small.

Definitely a work in progress. 

Best wishes to you all, and if you see anyone from Aylesbury can you ask them to turn their lights off at night as the skyglow is terrible!!

Thanks James

Don't let anyone tell you a 300p is easily portable, it weighs a ton.

Still lots to learn just to get a half decent view.

Thanks for the welcome.

Phil

Thanks for the welcome "Carzy about stars"!!

Have had a few good views of Jupiter, though I don't quite undersatnd how I get such a similar size view through both scopes hmmm....

I have a LOT to learn.

Have booked onto a course with Guy Hurst in the village, and have promised not to buy anything else until I can fully use what I have.

Regards

Phil
