Welcome to EMS Tim. Sounds a similar story to a lot of us. There's a whole heap of stuff up there to discover.


 


Feel free to post any specific questions in the beginners board or topic relevant areas of the boards and I'm sure you'll get a good response. :)

Hi Tim and a warm welcome to EMS. :)


 


I started out with a 150P as well - at around the same age too. Wish I'd begun a lot earlier in life. You'll get plenty of help here - as Mike says just pop any questions you have in the beginners section and someone will be along soon with an answer. Enjoy the forum! :)

Hello Tim. I am an old member (at least two weeks!) and I have already had a great deal of help from the members here. I see you actually have a scope - which I don't - so you should have no problems but, if you do, simply ask a question and  it will be answered.  :)

Hi Tim, a warm welcome to EMS.


 


Well your'e off, and have a scope, so all you need is some clear sky. Ask away with questions, someone will point you in the right direction.


Here's to many years looking up! :)

Hi Tim,


 


Warm welcome to EMS. If you have not done so download a planetarium program, plenty out there but try Stellarium, its great and free to be found here :--- http://www.stellarium.org/ . Also try copies of 'sky & telescope pocket star alas' and 'turn left at orion' these will all help guide you round the sky.
