Thank you so much for such a kind reply.

That info has helped me so much. I am going to digest it all and get practicing. I have taken around 700 photos so far lol. Just messing around with different settings etc.

I will post some pics up and write in the different settings for you to see.

Thanks

Stuart

the  stars that go to make the constellations are amongst myriads  others and that makes it difficult to isolate them too.
Sure but most of the ancient ones are pretty obviously a group ... learn half a dozen in different parts of the sky that you can use as signposts & the rest is easy.

I challenge anyone to pick out Camelopardis as a group though - it's a big diffuse patch which looks empty in a suburban sky as there are no stars brighter than mag 4 - when star hopping in Cam I start from Auriga or Perseus as there is usually nothing obvious to start from.

Yes, I'll do that then , Brian.  One Step at a time,  get a few under my belt and I can set my self targets.


Glad we've been of help, Stuart. Look forward to seeing your photos. You see, I'm lost with finding my way round the sky and I'm getting help so it's swings and roundabouts.
