    Default Hello World



    Hey everyone.

    I am really exciting to be joining your forum community. It seems like an awesome knowledge base, and a great group of people. I just got my first telescope today, a Celestron SE8, which is already impressing me beyond belief. Hopefully there will be many more night of star-gazing to come!

    I wish you all well.
