Hi all


I have always had a fascination with the dark stuff above our heads but never done anything about it until now,

I have just purchased a Skywatcher explorer 200p on eq5 mount, not had the privilege of using it yet :(

 although I will be starting off with visual observing I do plan on doing a little astro photography at some point, all be it not on a massive budget :)
