    Default Greetings from Pennsylvania



    Have dabbled in astronomy since I was 10, now that I'm in my mid forties I'm starting to find time to reaquaint myself with the hobby.

    Thus far, nothing major equipment-wise: a 2.5" Meade refractor witht an Autostar mount, and a 4.5" reflector (which as of today, has been liberated from an old alt/az mount an placed on a proper GEM)...matter of fact, just posted a question in the Meade forum in regards to obtaining or building an RA drive for it.

    Just the small equipment in my backyard; if I feel the need to expand, there's always the LVAAS sites on South Mountain or Pulpit Rock.

    Other hobbies? Well, I fly an '87 Paraplane PM-2, homebrew wines, and make a general nuisance of myself where the spouse is concerned!
