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


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

Stupid question probably.

Good afternoon all.

I am trying to post a hello and a question but apparently it is too spammy.

Morning Everyone!

Hi everyone,

ThinAir (Chris) here, just reaching out and saying hi.

Got my first telescope for Christmas (A Celestron Astromaster 130EQ) as a result of the GF getting fed up of me threatening to buy one and spending most of my time outside at night developing a crick in my neck.

I've also invested a pair of binoculars and a little red-light torch after reading something in a book that said it wouldn't affect my ...

Hello all!

My name Chris, and I live just north of Toronto, ON. I just registered with Sky At Night Magazine and I am just waiting on the delivery of my first telescope - the Meade ETX 80 Backpack.

Looking forward to asking silly questions, learning new things, meeting good people and picking up this new hobby.

Hello guys.. I am new to this forum and thought I'd introduce myself.. I am Bala and I was gifted a telescope last week by my wife and have always been interested in astronomy and astrophysics but never somehow got myself a scope.. I have begun this journey with a SkyWatcher Heritage 130p and have not had much luck with clear skies..

Starshot hype. It can't, won't work, so forget it.

Having caught the end of the Sky at Night on TV, I joined up to scotch the nonsense I heard about Starshot.

No, it can't, won't work, so forget it.

Even if you got a tiny probe that far, it could not send a powerful enough signal back to Earth so we'd never know even if it got there in one piece.

Crazy hype.

On the other hand, if a Russian billionaire offers me $100 ...

Nuby Nuby


My name is Jon,

I've always had an interest in all things skyward, but i want to begin to get into astronomy in a bit more depth, as opposed to just watching the odd satellite or flare every now and then!

I guess this is the best place to come for the undoubted wealth of collective knowledge of all seasoned members of this forum

Quick bit about myself, recently separated father of 1,work as ...
