    I've been camping around Banagher and the Sperrins before. I didn't have my scope, but I had my binoculars and the sky was crystal clear!

    Hi All
    Does anyone know of any local observers meetings in Derry?
    I would like to buy a telescope but I'm not sure which one to get and thought I might get some good advice from those that already have them and of course I'd love to have a look.

    Welcome, Birdseye! I was born in Derry.

    I can't help you with clubs in your area, since I haven't lived there in decades. There is an Irish forum here that might help you locate a group.
