How did you become interested in astronomy?

No answer yet

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

The best location I know is my family's farm deep in West Virginia, where the nearest artificial light greater than 100 watts if over a mile away. But locally to me, the best I know is the roof at Henryton Hospital, but that's not exactly accessible.

Do you use ever use optical equipment for stargazing?

The naked eye I suppose. If I can find a nice clear and easily accessible area to view from, I may look into getting a telescope.

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

Do you use any astronomy software?

Introduction

Astronomy is a field of science that fascinates me, but I still know little about (beyond what I learned watching Cosmos). I hope to learn and enjoy myself.
