    Default New girl



    Hi everyone,

    Iím new to this forum!

    Iím fascinated with all things space related and Iím looking forward to learning more. Iím currently enjoying researching space travel, space exploration, physics and science rather than observing. I own a telescope, however itís pretty basic. When Iíve saved up enough Iíd like to buy a new telescope so I can get more enjoyment from observing!

    Dactyl.

    Thank you for being so welcoming everyone!

    My current gear is just a national geographic telescope. It’s been good fun to use on clear nights in the garden with mates after a barbeque and a couple of drinks, but it really isn’t anything special!
