My back yard, it's not very dark but its right there. I've been to the elk island dark sky sight and love it but I don't make it out there often.
I got my first telescope last summer, best purchase of my life it gets endless use. I have a 4" Nexstar 102SLT Telescope. A small beginner scope but it gets great views of Jupiter and the Orion Nebula and its good enough to make out Saturn's rings.
I became interested in Astronomy 4 years ago. I am a student, I'm not taking Astronomy sadly, but I find the Universe endlessly fascinating and spend most of my free time learning about it and sky watching.
