    Default Hi everyone



    I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I'm new to astronomy, though I've always had an interest in the universe. I'll hopefully be purchasing a telescope in the near future, can't wait! These forums have been helpful so far, looking forward to chatting with you all.

    Hi Christina,

    Welcome! I'm also new to astronomy, and like you that desire was always there to learn more, but never the time. Now that the kids are grown and gone, it's time to learn something before my grandson starts asking too many questions I can't answer..

    The Moderators and members here are incredibly patient and helpful with all the questions us new folks have about that first scope. I have found from the info here that a good number of the Messier objects can be seen with just a pair of binoculars, and it's a great way to learn your way around the stars.

    Mike
