Winter Multiples #1

The first multiple star is Castor in the constellation of Gemini. Its a fairly close double and requires about 100x to split. It looks better at 250x

The next is Rigel in Orion. Rigel's companion is a bit more difficult, mainly because it is dim compared to the main star. It can be a little difficult to see let alone photograph. The companion is the faint dot below the main star. Most amateur telescopes ...

Fairly specific first telescope advice please...

Hello all,

I’ve been having a chug around the forum and various sites to work through some advice for buying a first telescope. I realise this is essentially the age old “What telescope for £xxx?” question, but my situation is quite specific, if I may explain…

Meade ETX 80 - ISS & The Moon

Hello all!

I just recently purchased the Meade ETX 80 Backpack, and I am just wondering if a) is it possible to view and track the ISS and b) what is your opinion on the view of the Moon using the factory eye pieces?

Thanks in advance!

Chris.

Hello all!

My name Chris, and I live just north of Toronto, ON. I just registered with Sky At Night Magazine and I am just waiting on the delivery of my first telescope - the Meade ETX 80 Backpack.

Looking forward to asking silly questions, learning new things, meeting good people and picking up this new hobby.

Cheers!

Chris.

2015 John Lewis Christmas advert scope

Hi all,

Newbie here :) I realise this may be a bit of a random post/thread, but do any of you know what telescope was the one used in the John Lewis Christmas advert last year?

While I realise that it was no Hubble and therefore in reality couldn't zoom in on the house of the man on the Moon, let alone the man himself ...
