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


Hi everyone
I am returning to the hobby after a few years of practical inactivity (laziness really).

Had my old faithful Celestron Nexstar 8 out the other night with my new partner and we enjoyed the views of Saturn, Jupiter and Venus (in that order of enjoyment). The Moon is our next target. My partner had not used a telescope before and this was my first time in ages so it was a good night. ...

Hello from Skegness

Good evening from The Village Church Farm in Skegness. We have a great site for gazing at the Sky as it is well away from lights. Three acres with a 1766 house which is the oldest in town. It would be great to have a star gazing activity night. We have not had one before.

Hi all,
I'm John Scales and I'm from Banbury in Oxfordshire. Only about 20 minutes from Rollright Stones, our local Dark Sky spot. I received a Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ MD telescope for Christmas from my wife (my first since I was 14!). Had it only a month and the latitude adjustment screw would not take any weight! Sent it back and have received a new one. Can I ask all you old hands what ...

Morning folks

Having picked up a very basic/cheap reflector telescope at a local charity shop near work for £20, I've suddenly made a stark realisation that this is something I could really get into. My ignorance on the subject has meant I only recently discovered I could combine by photography interests with astronomy. :oops:

Anyway,I'll start a new thread on my findings and what I think I am after, ...

Hi from Hampshire

Hi all, I'm Matt currently living in Hampshire.

For many years I've just been in awe of what the celestial sphere has to offer to us and have been slow to do anything about it, partly my fault and partly living with no garden. Now I have a garden and live quite close to a dark area (Butser), so I bought myself a Celestron CPC925XLT and will be signing up to UCLAN for their distance ...
