Camelopardalis viewing

Hello all,

As this is the "Ask a silly (astronomy) question" section, I though this would be good place to ask this question.

I have just "named a star" for my wee cousin. Her Grandad passed away this year and she has been having some difficulty with this especially in the run up to Christmas, so I though if I got a star named after her Grandad (my Uncle) it would give her something to ...

iPad version

Hi all,

I am thinking of subscribing to the iPad edition instead of the print version. I still want to use the night sky versions, but obviously don't want to use the iPad due to the light. Is there anyway of getting those sections to print off?

Also, would you have any way to access the content on the cover disc.

Thanks for any help,

Sun photographic playlist

I am making videos of my solar drawings and photographs of the Sun starting from 2004 and have finished up to (and including) 2007. In many cases, I have extracted details that I was unable to with the processing tools I had back then.

I have used a variety of music.

November Report and Video and December kick off

Observationally it was quiet, with opportunities limited by weather and illness. I spent more time on my back catalogue of solar hydrogen alpha shots. I was sometimes surprised at how much detail I could get from old photos by using GIMP.

Finally I've kicked off December with (yes, you guessed it!) reprocessed solar hydrogen alpha shots which I will make into ...

Need help choosing a telescope - Beginner


I am looking for a telescope for my wife that is able to connect to a Canon Eos DSLR camera to take photos. It's our first telescope so don't want to break the bank, ideally I would like to pay around £100-150. We want to be able to observe planets and as much as the nights sky as possible.

Is this a possibility on such a low budget?

Upgrade to Skywatcher Startravel 150

I am thinking of upgrading my Rack & Pinion focuser on my 150mm Startravel Refractor to the Crayford version that Skywatcher have out. Anybody have one or have experience with one of these focusers? Just would like a general review of how they perform before I lay cash on one or not. Cheers :)
