    I am a 56 YO electrical engineer, for years approached astronomy from a cosmology POV. A few years ago I bought a small Tasco Luminova 60mm refractor. I recently purchase a Celestron Nexstar 6SE which Iam now starting to use from home in Santiago, Chile

    I live in south Brazil (29S 51W), do most of astronomy work with binoculars due to comfort and fast setup time.

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

    Hello, I'm Carlos, from Lima, Peru. My main interest is astrophotography for which I use a Celestron 6' on an Advanced VX mount, Orion Starshoot autoguider with PHD, a Canon T3i, APT and Stellarium for camera and telescope control and a ton of patience since the weather here usually doesn't help a lot...

    Clear Skies!
