Hello from Lincolnshire!


Recommended Posts

Having spent the last few months being directed to this website with all my astronomy questions I thought id finally do the best thing and join!

So a quick intro on myself.

I have been into astronomy since a young lad. My first telescope was a home made refractor my grandad made for me when i was around 12. It wasn't the greatest scope but it had me hooked! Ive had a few others since then, one a refractor and one a reflector.

I drifted away for abit from actual stargazing and spent alot of time learning about the cosmos, particle physics, quantum mechanics, string theory and anything else that would make my head hurt!!

Now I have come back to my roots and have started to really get back into stargazing. I am in the process of researching a telescope that will suit my needs (and budget!).

My other interests are surfing, snowboarding and homebrewing.

I would like to also take this opportunity to thank everyone on stargazerslounge who has already answered many of my questions. Now as I member I hope I can return the favour!!

Thanks and see you on the forums,
