    Default People in Bristol or SE Wales



    Hi all,

    Just checking to see how many people there are in the areas of Bristol and the SE of Wales. Would be nice to find some local people for when there is a half decent night to get the scopes out.

    Hello Dude,
    I live in the Rhondda just outside Cardiff, by the way does your name come from a film?

    I live in Cardiff... total noob and just signed up here..
    bought my first scope last week (skywatcher 130) and still learning the ropes...
    started learning some constellations and managed to find saturn and mars last night which although they were tiny, I enjoyed...

    I have found site for cardiff astronomical society (but cant post link yet due to <5 posts), and under the OBSERVING tab they list nights they get together about once a month, and says at the top of the page anyone is welcome to just turn up and take part.....

    Bristol here! I have a 4" grab and go refractor, i drive a few miles out of the city and set up there. It's not the biggest scope, but the portability means I can get it out of the city when we finally get a break in the clouds!
