Hello nice people. I just joined the forum, sometimes I think it's only me in the cosmos who's interested in it. Hence why I joined you guys ?. I'm trying to learn how to find my way around the forum as it's a bit confusing so please bear with me.

I would not describe myself as nice. Grumpy, cynical and narcissistic is more accurate. However, this is the right forum to ask beginner questions. Don't worry too much if your question sounds stupid. We were all beginners at one time and we are all still learning.

 

If you let us know what equipment you have we can advise you on how to get the best out of it. You may probably get some conflicting answers but this is because we all have different preferences, experiences and our own interests.

 

As for me, my main interests are the Sun and taking widefield shots with my DSLR. You'll also find deep sky specialists, planetary nuts, lunar fans and all sorts.

Thanks guys. You all seem sound as a pound ?. I change my mind on the style of telescope and I had it delivered today just before I set off to work. I treated myself to a sky watcher 150p on EQ3. It looks the business and I'm hoping to use it over the weekend. Can anyone explain what the p is in 150? I know it's 150 mm in diameter but what does the p mean?? 

 

Thank you
