How did you become interested in astronomy?

No answer yet

What is your favorite or most memorable place you have stargazed from?

Skyline Drive, because it is nearby. I prefer darker locations (West Virginia, or out west), but they are not as easy to get to.

Do you use ever use optical equipment for stargazing?

I use the appropriate equipment for what I am observing. Naked eye for meteors, 7x50 binoculars for comets or the Milky Way, or my 8" telescope for planets or Messier objects.

Have you taken any astrophotos, and if so, what equipment (35mm, DSLR, CCD camera)?

I have taken photos with 35mm film in the past. I have not been active in astrophotography in recent years.

Do you use any astronomy software?



I have been interested in astronomy since middle school.
