    Default Junior Astronomer from BC, Canada



    Hi all, first ever post to introduce myself.

    I am a new astronomer, aged 6, (my dad will moderate all posts that I make).

    I have an 8" skywatcher dobsonian (or at least I will be unwrapping it on my birthday)

    My interests are planetary, nebulae and astrophotography.
    So far I have seen the orion nebula, saturn and M31 through my celestron astromaster 70, I want to see the andromeda galaxy, saturn and a lot more through my new 8`skywatcher dob.
