Martin Heath Posted June 12, 2021 Share Posted June 12, 2021 I am a new astro observer with a view to photography too. After many years moving from place to place I now have the opportunity to invest time and effort into a hobby that has piqued my curiosity for many years. I made a rather impulsive purchase of scope and mount. I am now making sense of my equipment and the viewing options open to me. I read with interest all I can on viewing and photo techniques and look forward to having a go and getting feedback from the large community of experience I see on this site. My set-up consists of, Skywatcher 150PDS Newton. Celestron AVX EQ mount. Various Oculars from Explore Scientific, Altair, Orion incl 2x Barlow from Explore Scientific. Celestron Starsense auto-align, Altair Astro GPCAM 224C(which ev will be used for guidance). Being in Sweden, at 57,7N the subject matter at the moment is the sun. Unfortunately missing the partial due to cloud cover. Very little darkness during the summer months poses some limitations and cold winter months reduce the amount of time exposed to temperatures below freezing and an above average amount of light pollution from Göteborg. All in all a perfect challenge to better my skills in gazing at the universe. I hope to be able to contribute something of interest to you and welcome a discussion on technique and content in the future. Oddly looking forward to Midsummer celebrations, when it doesn`t get dark! All the best from a Bright and Summery Sweden, Martin. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
