    Default Hello from Chile



    Hi there. 34 yr old from Santiago, Chile. Bought my first telescope last year, a 60mm refractor (Celestron PowerSeeker 60AZ). I've seen Saturn's rings, and recently for the first time Jupiter's moons I'd really like to do some astrophotography some day, and I'm well aware that my current scope won't be very helpful for that purpose. Anyway it's a long term project, I'm not really in a hurry... I guess my main goal for this year is to try to attend to my first organized star party. Greetings to all!!

    Welcome to the forums-----
    Not being in a hurry is a good thing....there is so much to see, so much to learn...telescopes and the night sky becomes a way of life!!

    Local astronomy clubs and star parties are a great way to meet local astro-nuts like us......
