First View of the Moon through the Bins

I've only just started to get into this hobby.

For the first time outside with the moon I was blown away with the amount of detail I could see in the little curve of the moon through my binoculars. Simply stunning, I can't wait to be able to get closer with a scope and see more and more.

Amazing isn't it. I could stand and look for hours at it..... Superb through even a small scope like mine :))

Wait 'til you see it at higher magnification, it's literally out of this world (pardon the pun!).

It really has had me hooked, I'm now getting a loan of a telescope from my sister-in-laws dad who has lots of them. I've no idea what type of scope it is yet but it's a start. I'm looking to get a skywatcher explorer 150/200P in the future.

Sounds like you are defiantly getting the bug alright!! ;)

Skywatchers are nice scopes too. I’d like a Skywatcher Explorer-200PDS on an EQ5 mount, but I’m just not sure I have that extra little bit of space needed over my existing Celestron (or I should say ‘I’m not sure my wife thinks we have the extra space’!! lol :lol: :lol: )

Enjoy your borrowed scope and enjoy the skies for a while first though. My way of thinking is that learning your way around the stars is probably as important as having a nice scope. At least you will know what you are looking at when you do get your own pride and joy ;)
