Hello to everyone. I've just started to get into astronomy. Love it so far.

I'm looking forward to some clear sky's and finding somewhere dark to see lots of starry goodness.

I've got a celestron astromaster eq 130 md scope and a lens kit and various filters.

Hello and welcome to EMS.

We have a couple of dark sites that we use when the weather permits. One is at Belper and the other at Sawley, you get some cracking dark skies at Belper!

It costs £20 a year for dark site membership, but your first visit to each site is free to see if you like them, the fee keeps the sites open as we rent them off local land owners. That £20 membership gives you unlimited access.

Hope you enjoy the forum, any questions just ask in the relevant section and somebody will get back to you.

All the best,
