Hi Gerry,
Welcome to IFAS! You hardly go to observing sessions with the Celestron in the 'back' of the DeLorean, do you? B)

Don't forget, Midlands Astronomy Club ( www.midlandsastronomy.com ) is, kind of, not too far away from you, in Tullamore. We have members from Roscommon and Athlone who make the trip to our events every month. It might suit you now and again to come along, who knows. We're hosting a Perseids StarBQ on Saturday night outside of Tullamore , while our next lecture night will be on Tuesday September 1st. You're welcome to come to either, with no obligation to join, and check us out...

MAC Secretary.

Hi guys, always had an interest in astronomy but not the time, getting on a bit now so hopefully getting more time to indulge. I bought a second hand custom made telescope a couple of years ago but the mirrors were poor, well one was broken! Just had the main one redone, wow nor cheap. Now need help in knowing what mirror to get to replace the broken one.

You can find me on Cape Clear Island so not much light pollution here, perfect for star gazing. I look forward to getting started and hopefully posting some pics once I get the hang of things.

Welcome along coolideas, it sounds like you are in a great location ! I sometimes head down south out by the coast to get great views looking southover the sea.

Welcome, great location alright but I'd imagine even cloudier than the mainland!

Hi Skyhawk,

Welcome to IFAS. Yes, we do still post here. Thanks for the introduction. Where abouts are you based? To get you started off, it might be a good idea to get involved in one of the local groups/clubs.

Feel free to ask any questions and one of us may be able to help.

Welcome again,

Sean

Oh, apologies, hahaha. I thought by your message you are from wales but moved over here. Well still, if you have any questions or want to get involved in any discussions, work away. Glad to have you aboard.
