I'm planning in getting something myself. I could spend all night just looking up into space. I'm just the kind of person that needs to have really good equipment and not really knowing anything about the subject. It's going to take some time for me to settle on to what I want.

In the meantime, I've seriously been considering having a membership at this site. http://www.itelescope.net/ $20 or so a month and it allows you to take video and pictures.

I purchased a new telescope a while back and managed to get some great moon viewing time this week and TBH didn't notice anything unusual apart from a strange orange glow. I have since learned the orange glow is from high methane levels (i put this down to the Mrs digestive system been off) but apart from that not noticed anything really?

:cheers:


I need to learn more about its cycles.

It's funny; it has been there all my life, and it has just recently struck me how wonderful the thing is; its contribution to our existence. It almost seems to perfect; like it was designed and put there for a specific function.

As you can see we are less than clueless about what is really going on on the moon.

Interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing.

I must admit, my knowledge of the moon isn't that great; but I do recognise trends in its cycle; and from my little observations, there certainly seems to be a change in its normal routine.

np tuor. Let's keep on researching I am thinking of buying a celestron myself.

The current literature on the Moon is not reliable. And space travel to the Moon is a long long time ahead. Let's see what we can find ourselves in our lifetime.

Nice, my friend. I too sit in my garden just looking up. My misses thinks I am mad; but it gives me a nice feeling just gazing into the stars and imagining the wonders that exist out there.

I have a new job now that will allow me more time to indulge my interest in astronomy etc.

It is great obtaining second hand knowledge; but there is nothing like obtaining knowledge through your own empirical hard work.

Great discussions guys, many thanks. One comments that resonated strongly with me was;
''I must admit, my knowledge of the moon isn't that great; but I do recognise trends in its cycle; and from my little observations, there certainly seems to be a change in its normal routine.''
- Definetely mate, now that i am 'onto this' and we have a clear night tonight, just ridiculously cold, i will dig out 'the world's most powerful binoculars' and have a closer look at the moon, although i don't think a physical anomaly is occuring with the moon, this is more of a movement thing and also more importantly as was said earlier it's something to do with the sun, i'm really feeling strongly this is NOTHING to do with the moon, in fact this is all about what the sun is doing... very interesting times folks. :think: :cheers:

''It's funny; it has been there all my life, and it has just recently struck me how wonderful the thing is; its contribution to our existence. It almost seems to perfect; like it was designed and put there for a specific function.''
- Evidence of a creator if ever there was one ? I think so. And that's not to mention the scientific baffling, physics defying way the bumblebee flies or the amazing metabolism of the hummingbird etc etc etc people say often they need proof of a creator, i mean LOL...
:D god bless..

There is something truly spectacular about the dynamics of our existence.

And has anyone noticed that the moon is slowly revolving clockwise? Am I going crazy or what? Look at the crater positions from evening to evening. When I take the dog out for a pee late each night, it looks different. Maybe I was asleep in class the lesson when they said the moon rotates? Same face as always, but sometimes its almost upside down. Anyone have an explanation?
And before you ask:

1/. I didn't trip over
2/. Not drunk
3/. I'm not.....well ok...I'm a wee bit stupid. :owned:
