    Default Learning



    Hi Im new in this but its something that i really want since i was a kid, now i just get a Celestron Astromaster 130 for Christmas and i am very happy with it but i know that i need to learn a lot to get all the potential of this telescope, i read a lot and im trying to understand everything by myself. I Live in Bogota, Colombia but i work in a small town about 160Km from Bogot and there its a nice place to look at the Sky (most time of the year its dry and clear) actually our indians has this place as sacred and they build an observatory (more than 500 years ago) also im trying to get some basics at some university or astronomy club but unfortunately the classes and reunions are in the middle of the week and i cant assist to most of them. I hope to be an active member of this Forum and of course i will be making some questions as i geeting more involved.

    My Best Regards

    Enrique Moreno
