    Default Hi everyone



    Hi all. As you can see, Im one of the newbs here. Still reading and asking in order to get my first telescope. Apart from the sky, Im from Puerto Rico, Im a download junkie, like reading "geeky" stuff (thats what my wife says). I do IT costumer service for a some company on the US. Since a kid, I always had the love for the skies, computers, gaming, and photography. The only one left is the sky, and I plan to take care of that before Xmas. Ill learn as much as I can here, and in time, I hope I can pay back helping others. Willing to help in English and Spanish, so yes, "yo hablo espa˝ol"

    Hi all, and thanks for the welcome. I have done some great reading on the forums. Lots of knowledge, good community. I think its as good as anyone can ask for

    Hi Tex, I just decided a few minutes ago, and I will go with the Skyquest XT8. I believe that its a big enough aperture for the money, not as good for AP as it comes, but I dont intend to get into AP, until I get some knowledge just by exploring, observing, and well, asking here
    Anyone with problems can feel free to ask me and Ill try to help, cant say that Im a big help on this subject, but I know the power of reading and searching

    That brings up a good point, Joel. Everyone should have a name in their signature line. It makes things friendlier. Make one up if you are hesitant to use your real name. I always feel bad when all I see is a screen name and I want to welcome a new member or reply to a post. I feel that it is not polite to refer to someone as say "seventh_interplanetary_knuckle_head" when a simple Mary or Ted could be used instead.
