Hey Everyone

Hey Everyone, I'm Jonathan nice to meet you all. I joined the society at the last meeting, all the events and trips you do sound amazing. I love astrophotography, I'm not particularly any good at it but am learning new things all the time. I've got some photos already if can post them? Living in Central London is a right pain because of the light pollution, so I can't wait to join you all on your next observation evening and dark sky camp.

I own a Celestron 6" Schmidt-Cassegrain with an Advanced VX GoTo Mount.

One thing I've not really go the hang of is polar aligning the scope. If anyone would be so kind to show me how to do this one day, I would be eternally grateful

Welcome to the forum Jonathan.

If you come to the next Deep Sky Camp (DSC) which is from 19 - 21 June (keep an eye on the forum), and bring your kit with you, some-one will help you polar align, we are a friendly helpful bunch.  Trouble is it won't get dark until really late.

Welcome! As the others have said we will be more than happy to show you how to polar align.
