Hello nice stargazers out there,

I am Margot, one year from retirement (civil servant for the past 4 years yak!!!) I've been in England for the past 34 years, originally from South America. Living in Polegate E/Sx. I've been interested in the stars for the past few years but haven't been able to get into it just yet due to the luck of time, but I'm very much look forward to be part of something and this hobby looks perfect.[:D]

Hi Les,

Thank you for your welcoming message. I hope I don't bore you all with silly questions in the future. So far I have read books and magazines and feel a bit confused by it all, however, I started with Orion and hopefully I will extend my knowledge from there. I'm close to Eastbourne and there is a lot of light pollution emanating from the east, but slightly darker towards the west. Did you say you were from Scotland? Lively place, visited in 1975.

Regards
Margot [:D]

Hi Margot and welcome aboard.

I don't know how you managed to place your intro in Admin's box, but never mind you are here now so, like Les, I'll respond to you here.

Its a great hobby, that would be even better if it wasn't for this persistent cloud.

Hi all sky watchers,
I,m Rick 35 yo from near Norwich. I've just joined this group and am looking forward to learning lots!! ive only just started out in astronomy (2 weeks to be exact!) so am looking for lots of good advice. The cloud has stalled my progress so far and any advice on setting up an electronic equatorial mount for my 6" reflector scope would be greatly apprieciated.
thanks and i look forward to getting to know you alRick
