    Good day to all.

    I hail from the west side of the Severn Bridge but now live in Bristol, in a mass of light pollution, not least the 8 Megawatt streetlight outside our bedroom window - we used to take care of such problems back in Swansea with a BSA .22 Airsporter but allegedly that's not allowed according to Bristol City Council........odd bunch!

    I'm using a Meade ETX 125 but not getting as much use out of it as I should.

    I really want to get into astrophotography and have a mount for my Nikon DSLR but find clear focussing a real problem - any ideas? I suppose a CCD Imager is the real answer but then I have the new problem of figuring out how the hell I use it!!

    Grateful for any advice but please keep it simple

    Hi,

    I'm in Portishead. My new (well, secondhand) Celestron 5se should be waiting for me when I get home. Exciting times, apart from all the blasted cloud that is. No chance of spotting Pan-Starrs tonight I fear.

    Jon.

    I'm from Bristol; very new to skywatching and using a birding scope which isn't ideal. Saw Saturn's rings for the first time (badly) with it on Sunday and Comet PanStarrs last Thursday fairly well.

    Looking forward to learning lots on here.
