    Default Hi from Melbourne, Aus



    Just saying hi and thanks for having me.

    I'm new to this and looking to buy my first telescope (a gift for my brother, and hopefully one for me down the track!) and thought this would be the perfect place for some advice from some fellow astronomy lovers.

    Looking forward to hearing from you
