Hello from Blackpool

Postby omigod » Mon May 25, 2020 6:54 pm

Hi everyone,
I'm in Blackpool and just recently started my journey into Astronomy (Not quite true as I built a telescope in the 80s but never really got into it)
As I have no money, in this money hungry hobby !!, my aim is to see how little you can spend to get reasonable results thus I'll probably need lots of help, lol.
I managed to buy a 2nd hand Skywatcher 120 refractor on an EQ5 mount for £30 and am rebuilding my old 8.5 inch mirror into a dobsonian.
The plan is to make as much of the equipment as I can from bits and bobs.
The journey begins.
