Hello from New Jersey!

Hi all,
I am a retired astronomy teacher (high school and college levels, including operating the planetarium of the university I worked for) and a lifetime astronomy buff. I am hoping to see the total solar eclipse visible across much of the USA on August 21, something I have waited my entire life to see.

Have been browsing this site for a few weeks and finally decided to join. Hopefully I can get information on astro-imaging thru an early Celestron CCD. However I just enjoy astronomy as a whole, whether its thru a scope or just looking at the sky.

a quick hello and an altaz query

Just a quick hello, this forums always serves me well with tips and relevant content. Thanks

Ive been a super keen amateur since my school days and now with 20 years observing through various borrowed scopes and endless binoculars I'm looking to up my astrophotography efforts. I've spend the last 4-5 years taking hundreds of various star trail/Moon shots direct on a D3200 but I'd like to investigate the best I can likely achieve ...

Hello from Northampton, UK

Good evening everyone. I am new to astronomy but have always been interested in science and "how its done" so to speak. I have built the Orrery from Eaglemoss and I am mid way through the Tellurion. There is shed loads to read and since I am retired I have more time than others. I find it fascinating reading about the Philosophers and astronomers of yesteryear, especially when one could lose their head for saying ...

Hi all,
Just joined and interested in starting some stargazing. I've read online that is best to start of with good binoculars then move onto telescopes.
Can anyone suggest a good pair of binoculars for stargazing?
I have looked myself and came across "Helios Fieldmaster 10x50 Binoculars" and "Helios Fieldmaster 7x50 Binoculars" but again as Im new I don't know if any of these are suitable.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.thanks
