Hello Group.

Thanks for the many welcome messages.
On behalf of my wife Jill and myself, Clive, we are very pleased to be part of your very friendly group.
I am an Astro` newbee with hopes of producing images in the future. Lots to learn - lots to achieve.
I have synthesized the answers to my many questions asked on my visits to the NLO regarding equipment that I will not `grow out of`. A visit to our local emporium, FLO produced.

Not set up yet but they are:

NEQ6 mount
Celestron C8 SCT
Atik Titon mono.
SPC webcam
Pier - work in progress ......Clive

Good to see your enthusiasm Clive. We all have been in your position so we know what its like! Must admit I'm still fairly low on the learning curve too.
Bring your gear up to the NLO and we can show you how to set it up - as I told you last week, I got quite confused reading the instructions, it's much better for someone to show you.

Hi Pete.
Thanks for the welcome. I will bring the kit up in the near future -- I would love to have it operational at the NLO. My enthusiasm is matched and encouraged by all the members of the group. Again, thanks.
