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

A hello from Hove, East Sussex.


I just occured to me that I have not introduced myself properly before piling on the posts.

I am in the center of Hove. I have a east/south east facing balcony that I do most of my observing from. Loads of light pollution from Brighton to the south east, but not too bad otherwise.

Equipment wise I have a Celestron 130GT, 80GT & Meade 10x50 binos. I also make a load of my own ...

Hello from Cumbria

Hi all,

Stephen here from Cumbria. I've been viewing the forum for some time. Thought I might as well join in! I've been into astronomy since I were a lad :)

I currently own binoculars - Olympus 8x42 (superb optics!) and some Pentax 20x60 which are so uncomfortable to use at night I don't bother with them, even when tripod mounted.

I don't have a scope at the moment, although I've been looking at the ...

Hi From West Oxfordshire

Hi everyone...
I'm Steve, I live in West Oxfordshire and I've been interested in astronomy for...well...years and years.
I was very a very active observer as a teenager, I had what I considered at the time a really good telescope,
bought from Dixons in the early 1970's, it was a 3 inch refractor on an equatorial mount, quite along focal length, about f16 I think
and not all that retrospect it wasn't all ...

Hi from the Samannan Plateau

Hi There,

From the Slamannan Plateau in central Scotland, we have great views over looking the Bonnybridge Triangle (any UFO buffs here) but haven't seen any aliens yet. Despite the strange name I'm Ian and have been into staring at the skies for 10 or so years mostly on am old tasco reflector, I have recentlt invested in a Relevation12 Dobsonian which is excellent and only requires the addition of a few eyepieces which i ...
