If only the clouds would disperse
Sunday, 6 January 2019  | 

Since taking delivery of my telescope the weather in the main has been cloudy, but on the few nights that I have been able to use it I have been very impressed with it, especially at its price. It is not Jodrell Bank but a very good beginners telescope.
