Computerized Telescopes

Computerized Telescopes offer a significant benefit to an amateur astronomer, so will be one of the primary considerations when looking for a new telescope.

As there are countless objects to locate and observe in the night sky this type of scope has obvious advantages, not least being able to locate and find objects very quickly. This allows an amateur astrononmer to do far more than would otherwise be possible ina single evening.


Zhumell Aurora 70 Refractor Telescope

Zhumell have recently expanded their line of telescopes to include the new Zhumell Aurora 70 Refractor Telescope with Motor Drive.

This scope has plenty to offer someone who is just starting out and the more experienced astronomer.

It's an appealing option regardless of whether you’re outfitting for your first foray or broadening an ever-growing collection of gear.


Hobby Ideas : A Favorite Past Time

Even amateur astronomers have other hobbies they engage in from time to time, but as any hobby enthusiast will tell you, spare time is not to be "spent" but savored.



A dominant feature of most planetariums is the large dome-shaped projection screen onto which scenes of stars, planets and other celestial objects can be made to appear and move realistically to simulate the complex 'motions of the heavens'.


Solar System

The Solar System consists of the Sun and the astronomical objects bound to it by gravity, all of which formed from the collapse of a giant molecular cloud approximately 4.6 billion years ago.

Of the many objects that orbit the Sun, most of the mass is contained within eight relatively solitary planets whose orbits are almost circular and lie within a nearly flat disc called the ecliptic plane.


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..............


Have you any comments, ideas, stories, interesting images or feedback? I'm always interested to hear from new and seasoned amateur astronomers. Just reply to this e-zine.

See you next month!
