Hi everybody
Just joined NLO and looking forward to some great times and learning lots of new stuff. We're not far from the observatory in Exmouth and we started by being given a telescope by a long term friend, a Tasco 6" reflector with 10mm eyepiece, and our first viewing at 3am one morning on Woodbury Common was Saturn and that was it, we were hooked. We booked an astronomy course at NLO and 1 week later returned with a Skywatcher 200PDS, EQ5 Synscan equitorial mount, various eyepieces and filters and we became members.
See you all soon
Peter & Sharon.

It was great to see you guys and glad we were able to help you get the best from your scope. You had a great view of Saturn in your 200PDS and your reaction was brilliant. Hope to see you again soon!

Lots of bits. Some useful, some not.
