I'm a somewhat experienced amateur. I have been at this since I was a little boy. My first scope was a 60mm Jason from Service Merchandise and my first "real" telescope was a 6" f/10 reflector on a german equatorial mount purchased from then WAS President Carl Noble. I loved that scope and wish I still had it. I have taken time away from this wonderful hobby to raise two beautiful daughters but now that they are grown and on their own I find myself back under the night sky.
Beauty, Serenity, Creation....Cool Gagets. :)
Warm shoes on a cool, clear, moon-less night and I'm a happy-camper. :)
