We had a great time at Drumroamin, Wednesday was clear, the rest was poor visually. As usual we had a great time , many casualties, Lee was our star, never seen a lap dancer at Drumroamin.  So many great folks to meet up with. It's not all about stargazing, but if you get that, it's a bonus.  Friday was incredible. Lesley put on a feast bettered by none. We had a video presentation by the Astronomer Royal, recognising Mike, bet you wont beat this.
 
It was emotional, incredible, and the best session  I have personally seen. Thanks must go to Steve for this. I hope you guys had a great time in Coll, and a personal thanks to The Astronomer Royal for this. What a great time, Damian, Lee, Ian, Derren ;) Kelvin, Steven, Adrian, Haydn and Christine, Martyn, Pete , Les, Chris, Phil, Jim and Dawn who broke a finger. THE THINGS we do for stargazing........
 
Get well soon Dawn xxx

That was interesting, had a video call from the director of the production company. New linen required. She asked many questions, and asked how was I in front of cameras, I said well I'm here now. So looks like possible 40 minute Galloway Documentary. [/size][/size]🤪[/color][/size][/font][/color][/size]She also wants to meet before the event to get my background. Drunk old fart with some astro knowledge. Canny wait, This could be huge for us guys.[/color]

Should have said I already have a meade lx200 8". But looking to improve on that scope. I only use it visually. Was thinking of the lx90 12" .but read so many conflicting reviews.

Hi david. Newbie here. I was already thinking about visiting down there on that week. Just to have a chat and hopefully get some advice on what kind of telescope I should go for.
What's your budget, decent binoculars are a good place to start. Here is a link that has beginner scopes [size=78%]https://www.firstlightoptics.com/beginner-telescopes.html[/size]


Hope to see you at Galloway
