Day of the noobs

Seems to be a lot of us joining up today

My names Jon I live in a rather wet a dreary (today) Kent, currently avoiding going outside. Have been interested in most things optical for years and worked for pyser-sgi a while ago making interesting optical kit, some of which is sitting on Mars. Interested in most things out doors ranging from photography to shooting, should have been target bashing at Bisley today but wimped out.

Visited the Welney reserve last weekend with my trusty Nikon binos and have been thinking of getting a starter scope., hence this place turned up on my search.

Cheers

Jon

Hi Jon and a warm welcome from me too

I'm sure you will enjoy it here, you'll get lots of information in the Optics forums.

I've never made it to Bisley

Hello and welcome.
Welney is not a bad place to start from.
