I am a keen watcher of the night sky (and sometimes the daytime sky
as well) from my home garden, using my 120mm Sky Watcher re-
fractor. As this garden is in the centre of a town with plenty of street
lamps around, I have to carefully choose what objects to locate, but
this is part of the challenge.
I am a member of The British Astronomical Association, Eastbourne
Astronomical Society, and the East Sussex Astronomical Society. Due
to my age, I have now decided to err on the side of caution, and re-
frain from standing outside under the stars in the cold by doing all my
observing from indoors in the warm. You can see how I accomplish
this on the next page. Although I have a camera fitted to the tele-
scope, it is only used to see what can be found from my very light pol-
luted garden, which Incidentally, is a vast amount, easily identifying
magnitude galaxies in only a few seconds of exposure,
you can see some examples on my deep sky page.
