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

Hello again.

Hi, I'm an old user but I somehow got lost between the old and new forums :lol:
In brief, I'm Brian from Caithness. I'm mainly into lunar, solar and planetary photography but also like to dabble in in a little basic DSO imaging at times. The photography thing has really blossomed in the last few years with the coming of the CCD. Many years ago I was ...

Hello Again

Last time I was here was over a year due to being busy and having difficulty getting back on. There used 2 be a facility whereby u could upload and display own photo albums; has that now gone by the board?

R.I.P. Tom and Margaret Pugh

I lost my Dad, Tom on Sunday morning and his sister Margaret Tuesday evening. Neither were astronomers but my Dad often liked to see my pictures on my mobile or laptop. Fortunately, they both lived long lives into their 80s.

I'm trying to continue as well as I can but haven't as yet got back to observing and photography. I have processed some DSLR constellation images taken on April 12th and put them on my ...

Hello again!

I'm ready to get back into the hobby again!

I moved house in Sept 2010, leaving behind my homemade observatory, and super fast broadband. I also left behind the light pollution.

The gear had been out twice in 2.5 years, both times for some solar white light imaging.

I guess a part of me got left behind with my observatory.

So.....what better to do than start building another!

Looking forward to getting back into the ...

Anyone remember Henry Brinton of Selsey?

Hi guys, I am the late Henry Brinton's daughter, Alicia (aka Alix). Since the tragic news of Patrick's death, many past memories have risen to the surface and I feel somewhat homesick for the old days... I still have all my Dad's books, also the ones he co-wrote with Patrick. Dad's 12" Newtonian Telescope is now at Slindon College in West Sussex, having been transferred from Selsey to Hatfield and back down to Sussex again. ...

Hello from dark(ish) sky Melton Mowbray


i'm new to astronomy, but have had an urge to own a telescope since I was a kid. Well, 30-odd years later and I now have a Sky Watcher Evostar 120 with an EQ5 mount - thanks to Santa aka my wife!

Last night I took it out to my front garden and once the clouds had cleared I managed to get my first ever view of Jupiter and the four Gallilean moons - ...

Hi from Cumbria

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 ...
