Astronomy Anyone
 
Is there anyone here who loves to look at the Stars. On top of my horses I teach Astronomy and love to look at the Stars. Was just wondering if anyone else liked it?

I am not into Astronomy though I usually do like to see stars at night time in an open sky (Mostly in summer as in winter you can't even see a moon let alone stars) :-)

Regards

Some of the best sights are in the winter. The Moon is always gone once a month.

I watched the meteor showers that just happened .

Yes in the winter the sky is alot clearer. I hope to see
some northern lights this yr too.

I used to love it, I have a really nice telescope that hasn't been out of its case in years. I really need to get back at it :?
I used to know many of the constellations but have forgotten them now:-(

Vidaloco If you want some help let me know. Get that scope out clean the mirror and look up. Ill help you in anyway that I can.

I loveeee it !
I'm pretty lucky too, the sky is often clear and dark for a long time in the winter and I don't have to drive for long to not have any light pollution.
I got a telescope for christmas a couple of years back, and we found out how it worked this year :roll: But I haven't used it yet (mainly because when I found out how it worked I was a) super busy b) light all day long)

If anyone wants or needs help just please ask. You can either email me or ask here. What kinds of scopes do you guys have?

Vidaloco 11-18-2008 10:20 AM

I have a celestron schmidt cassegrain. I can't remember the size :?

Lar's Buddy 11-18-2008 01:17 PM

Cool. Get that puppy out of its bag and give it some star time. I have a 10" homemade Dob, a 6" homemade Dob, and 2 120mm
