    Hi everyone,
    Yes the sky is dark and clear here. You get to see the milkyway.
    I think it's perfect for deep space photography.
    I have a pair of binoculars. My dream is to build a reflector telescope.

    Welcome to the Forum. Please read the 'Stickies' at the beginning of each Forum, they have important information for new folks that you need. Also, read 'Turn Left At Orion', 'NightWatch', and 'The Backyard Astronomers Guide' which will give you a good background in Astronomy, make great references, and answer many of your questions. Glad you joined.
