    Default Hi from Ohio



    Hi my name is Danielle I live in Ohio. Recently someone gave me a Bushnell 565 x 60 refractor with a EQ mount. I have no idea what I'm doing when I try to take it out!

    My interest in Astronomy was reading about constellations and laying in the grass looking up at the night sky, I guess this is why I ended up with the telescope. From what I have read from different websites and this forum binoculars seem to be a better starting point, so I think I will get a pair instead of furrowing my eyebrows at my new gift all night.

    Hello, Welcome
    I'm new to, and in Ohio (Columbus). I am going to try to go to Perkins observatory in Delaware, Ohio next fri or sat to maybe learn a little more about my new to me telescope. If you are in central Ohio I have heard that is the place to go for viewing and learning. It is the home of the Columbus Astronomical Society.
    You can find them at the-cas.org

    Thanks Joe.

    Walkette I'm around Cincinnati, I have been looking at a couple different places to check out. I'm excited to be able to have multiple places to learn about my new hobby.

    The multiple posts are a result of the forum being upgraded to a faster and more user friendly speed monkey, there are a few glitches that are being dealt with, some of which are multi posts
