Thanks again Steve and I shall keep it in mind but, whilst I am up-to-date with my laptop and Windows 10, I don't have a smart phone as my 2002 model Nokia still works! (It's in my bag in case I have to make an emergency call and for the occasional message, and sometimes used as an alarm.)

I'm absolutely no expert on telescopes, but I would just say that, in order to save both disappointment and your hard-earned dough, you should do mucho homework before you buy, preferably on astronomy-type websites. It's something of a minefield, and I have a feeling that you definitely get what you pay for.

I strongly recommend the Star Walk app. It might cost you a couple of quid, a one-off, but it's incredibly beautiful. Point your phone or iPad at the sky and it tells you exactly what you're looking at in glorious view. Move your device around and you can follow the sky around, even below the horizon, and there are lots more facets to the app. I wouldn't be without it. Apart from Daily Art, it's my very favourite app.

Thanks Steve.

This is one telescope I was tempted by Celestron PS70/700 Refractor Telescope

And this is a good site I found recently for seeing what is out there each night https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/night/

Unless you want to spend an arm and a leg in order to get fuzzy views of the Great Red Spot or Saturn's rings, the best astronomy tools for the amateur astronomer are your eyes. A decent pair of 8x30 binoculars are useful at times too. Most zoom binoculars are of inferior optical quality, so don't bother. For meteor showers, magnifying tools are your worst enemy as they cut down drastically the amount of sky you can see. The bins will get you seeing some nice double stars, such as the one in the middle of the Plough handle (a triple, actually, which binocs will reveal), and you can see the four big moons of Jupiter (there's a brilliant app for them). Decent kit for viewing things close up in anything like decent definition will cost you big mazumas.

...I have never had a decent telescope but do have quite a good south facing view from my studio flat; and, just lately, I have been looking at Argos's options; I have 40 X zoom with my late grandad's binoculars but it would be nice to have over a 100...

I tried mostly trad English poetic forms in my collection, but also made up a couple of my own and had a go at an Italian sonnet, plus a few haikus - including this one with a few photos attached of airliners and contrails: "Humanity"

No Donuel: as an amateur, I've turned up at poetry and folk clubs and festivals (including a few competitions), and done some mini-gigs; on a lighter note, at Newcastle's Green Festival (quite a big one) it's free entry and unpaid performance, but we were given a ticket for a vegetarian meal so, that day, I literally sang for my supper!
