Greetings stargazers!

Greetings stargazers,

I am new to the forum and I am interested in astrophotography, astrophysics, science in general and computing. I am a retired boffin and like to write software with scientific applications. I have just posted some new (free) Python plug-ins for GIMP that are specific to processing astro images. I found them useful, maybe you will too! If interested, get in touch. (I would post the URL, but Auntie thinks my message too ...

Greetings All

Hello All

Good Evening

Hi all, just registered on the forum after getting my first telescope for christmas (not bad at almost 42 years old). Needless to say I've wanted to get into astronomy in more depth for a long time, and hopefully expand my photography into astrophotography as well.
So, I'm just starting out, I've got the Bresser Skylux EL, which I'm just getting to grips with, slowly to be fair, but I guess there is a lot ...

Hi all,

Been browsing for a while now, so thought id register, introduce myself and ask a few questions, as you lot seem pretty friendly.

I live in Burnley, East Lancs and i'm looking to get started soon with a ...
