    Default New from Northamptonshire, UK



    Hello Everybody

    Am fairly new to Telescopes world. Got myself a birthday treat the other month, celestron nexstar 4se - since then we've been either away or experiencing cloudy skies
    Past two nights we have had very clear skies (advantage of living in the country side) so finally got to use my telescope and watch the moon. Absolutely stunning.
    This is a picture I took with my normal Lumix Camera the other night
    P1020441.JPG
    Between the telescope and watching the ISS stream in the background most of the time, my ultimate ambition ATM is to be able to see saturn and its rings. But waiting for a good change to align my telescope to begin with... didn't get as far.
    Cheers
    AstroFishbone

    Welcome to the forums! Sorry to be the bearer of slightly bad news though... Saturn is now gone for the year. However, on the plus side there's Jupiter now visible very early morning and a whole host of other goodies. Check out M42, The great Orion Nebula which is an awesome sight in any telescope.

    Thank you all. Davesellars, at least this gives me a year (or less) to get my gear sorted.
    Hopefully this alignment is not going to be too complicated - 3 brights objects etc
