    Default A new member from Europe :)



    Hi there

    Followed this forum for a while and registered last week or so.
    After 25y, I finally picked the hobby up for the second time. It started tingling again 2 years ago,but very occasional with my 7x50 bino since I lived in an apartment.
    Recently I moved to a house with garden and a lot of light pollution
    To celebrate that I bought my first upcoming workhorse for the hobby: a second hand Meade LX 90 GPS 8" with quite a lot of extra's to get me going.
    I just need to find a suitable 'dark' spot but that will take some driving.

    That's all for now!

    Cheers

    Nick
