    Hi all

    Whatever I say here could come across as rather self important but it is not my intention. I'm a 60yo Aussie who has owned telescopes constantly for the last 48 years. I am very hands on, and hope that I can contribute with some down to earth practical advice on small scopes and associated equipment. Also I hope to learn a few things too, Astronomy is a massive subject and we all keep learning new things all the time.

    I have included a list of some of my equipment in my sig, not as an ego trip, but more in the hope that anyone seeing this and wanting to compare notes or wanting advice will feel free to contact me.

    I have plenty of free time available now that I am semi retired, and contribute regularly to several other astro forums

    Hello Vinnie welcome to the forums!
    dont worry we understand if I was retired i would buy just as many! It is true, we do learn from everyone as there are too many fields in astronomy including theory, photography, deep sky, lunar, planetary, solar, etc.

    Great to have another knowledgeable astronomer on board

    Welcome! You'll have a lot of fun here, and you'll learn a lot. I have. Ask any questions in the right forum, and you're almost sure to get a good answer--often several.

    Thanks. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun. I'm sure I'll be in capable hands as regard to learning, a lot of which I confess I need to do.

    Hey, Welcome Fred!

    Check out the Astronomy Beginners Section.

    We are pleased to answer as best we can.

    If you already own a scope, you will also note that there are plenty of areas specific to particular types and makes.
