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

Hi from Cumbria

Hi,
I have just registered on the site.

I built an 8 1/2 inch reflector some 30 years ago.
Other hobbies/interests took over and the scope has languished untouched for years.

For some reason I got the scope out, set it up and...... I am hooked again.
I had forgotten how good it was exploring the night sky.

I have just adapted a webcam so need some clear nights to try it out.

Next job ...
