    I know Poppyg1rl's very much into astronomy but she's not at all well and doesn't post much these days.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    Sorry I can't advise you about tripods or any technical things regarding space. I'm very interested in it, particularly the beauty of the planets etc from an artistic point of view. I like to go on the Hubble site and just wonder at the awe-inspiring pictures. Good luck with the binoculars, Mell. Let me know what you see.
