I'm a new person to this forum business. I've joined because where I live in rural Wales, I have great dark skies, when they aren't obscured by our damp climate!

I'm not a very accomplished astronomer, I have some large WW2 naval binos, which do provide some startlingly good results. My main reason for joining this site is to ask questions, find out where to look (I do have a few almanacs - so try ...

Has Anyone Used An EOS 450D/550D/1200D Please?

Hi Guys, I need a Canon DSLR to try out Astro Photography. Since I need Live View to focus the stars, it needs to be at least an EOS 450D. But for double the money, the same dealer can also supply a 550D or 1200D.

Hello Sky at Night multiverse,

I'm an LA based filmmaker in early stages on a feature about an astrophysics student. I wondered if anyone on here who either studied or has taught astronomy/astrophysics at a university level would be willing to do an interview and be a consultant, I have some questions for you. Unfortunately it would not be paid, but I would only require a few hours of your time over the next few ...

Gaia - what a telescope!

It's clear to me that ESA's Gaia spacecraft is going to be one of the most productive scientific missions ever.

The motions of stars has been measured as well, including stars out as far as the Magellanic Clouds.

The most recent S@N TV programme gave a superb overview of the ...
