    Hi there,

    I am from Durban South Africa and have been enjoying astronomy from 1994. Love my Meade family....

    Hi all,

    I've just recently rekindled my love for astronomy which began at a very early age, although to be honest taking the time to gaze up at the Moon, planets and stars at night has never left me.
    I live just outside of Hermanus so light pollution is not really too much of a problem... yet.
    I dusted off the home-made 8" Dob reflector and purchased a "go-to" Celestron refractor a few weeks ago. It's been great to sit outside and revisit the wonders of the night sky again.
    Anyway, I'm really enjoying this forum and I hope to make some good friends here.

    Some people don't understand why I love astronomy so much! I cannot understand why they don't!

    I never realized this sub forum existed until today. So I thought I'd throw my name into the barrel.

    I live in Nairobi (Kenya) and I'm mainly interested in astrophotography and ATM.
