    If you see any Carolina location users here, you can send them an invite from the group.

    I did that for a few groups as some people have yet to learn how to use the system fully. Im still learning myself :P

    I was born and raised in Mt. Airy. Away from home for the time being, but hoping to permanently move back home within a few years. So no go right now, though I did just get my first telescope. I'll be up for star parties when I'm back around home.

    I know they've had a few star parties at Pilot Mountain. I've never been to them though.
