Spectacular Geminid

Flaring brighter than the full moon, this spectacular Geminid lit up the sky above Cartersville, Ga., at 2:29 a.m. EST on the morning of Dec.14th. This is one of the brightest fireballs observed by the NASA network of meteor cameras in over 4 years of operation.


Interesting Photos Of The Evening Sky

These photos of the evening sky were taken from my back garden during the late summer. Taken with a Fuji MX1700 digital camera, quite old by today's standards.


Two new astronomy clubs added this month...

East Midlands Stargazers

The East Midlands Stargazers is a small but growing online community of amateur astronomers from all over the East Midlands


East Lincolnshire Astronomy Club

ELAC is based in the Eastern part of Lincolnshire, we meet once a month at the Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve near Skegness


Telescope Parts

Many telescopes have parts that are common in name to each other, whilst others depending on the make quality and type may have parts that are not found on other models.

Cheaper models of scope will consist of far fewer parts then those mentioned here.


Beginners Telescope

Ok, so you have taken the plunge and decided to purchase a telescope.

Now what's the next step?

Astronomy is undoubtedly a fantastic hobby to engage in, but there are several key points you should be aware of in order to get started out on the right footing.


Where it warrants it we will have a feedback form covering each section, so you will be able to leave your comments, ideas, tips, images and thoughts on all aspects related to astronomy

Until Next Time, Keep Looking up..............
