How did you become interested in astronomy?

I grew up in rural Ohio so I would sleep on the trampoline as a kid and watch the stars all night long. I now work for an aerospace company that built components for the JWST, instruments on Kepler and Hubble - star trackers etc.

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

Lake Huron, Georgian Bay - Ont. Canada. Spent summers up in a cabin in a very remote part of Canada. You could see every star in the night sky!

Do you use ever use optical equipment for stargazing?

Just bought new telescope - haven't even had a chance to use it yet! I have a lot to learn.

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

No

Do you use any astronomy software?

No

Introduction

Long time space enthusiast - just bought my first telescope and hoping to join you all at the next star gazing party!
