Come and say hello to your fellow Sky at Night Magazine fan

...and goodnight from me....

Hi There.

I am brand new to astronomy... I always have had a massive interest in the skies, always pointing out stuff going on, but never owned a telescope until today.

My wife and daughter got me a Sky-Watcher pro series Skymax 150mm Maksutov-Cassegrain for Christmas. but it did not come with a tripod. I need to sort that out soon, but cost will be a constraint, I will probably make myself a Dobsonian Telescope ...

Hi All

Jon here from Manchester.

Been into astronomy for more years than I care to remember thanks to my old man.

Newbie very slowly learning

But we do get really quite dark nights with very little light pollution.
