How did you become interested in astronomy?

No answer yet

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

I'm new to the area, so I'd love to learn about some great places around here. I'm eager to go to the dark sky space in West Virginia. I went to college in Memphis and was able to take a trip to the Smoky Mountains. It was my best stargazing experience yet.

Do you use ever use optical equipment for stargazing?

Naked eye, mostly. I need to pick up a pair of binoculars asap.

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

I've taken some pretty horrible astrophotos. I have a Nikon D60 (DSLR) with a few different lenses and a tripod.

Do you use any astronomy software?

I have Stellarium which I mostly check out for fun and sometimes to reference the position of the constellations.

Introduction

Hello! I just moved to DC and am looking forward to making new friends.
