    Great you are getting into the hobby. You might eventually want a larger scope for deep sky objects after your residency but it is nice to have two scopes. A smaller, grab and go one , that you can start using and learning with now and a large Newtonian one later, when you can afford and have the space for it. I've worked as a dentist now for 36 years and think it is the greatest job in the world, for me at least. Nice patients, nice working conditions, surrounded by beautiful , smart women every day, good income, who could ask for more? I'm doing standing dentistry for a change now for the last year( I don't sit all day at work and lift weights at my desk so I can strong enough to carry my 75lb telescope part) and always work with two assistants for efficiency. I love my two truss tube dobs but sometimes it is easier to just set up and look through my 80mm - 150 mm refractors.

    Like another poster said, Skysafari plus or pro is a great program to have. My dob isn't goto, so I attached an iPad to it and use the Skysafari plus program to aim at objects. Lots of quick, useful info in it too.

    Hi Ross. I am sorry that I missed your original new member thread last January, and since Vertex has "bumped you up", I want to wish you a belated warm welcome to the forum Ross, and the best of wishes on your astronomy hobby adventures.
