'Sup!

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm just starting out with stargazing and telescopes and things of the sort. I'm a first year college student with plans to major in physics. I've been intersted in astronomy ever since I was little (I remember in first grade I was so excited to learn the planets!) and eventually my love of astronomy has expanded to include physics as well.

I've never used telescopes before. I'm looking to get my own right now and to possibley join the local astronomy club.

Besides for astronomy/ physics I'm also interested in language-learning, religions, and just science in general.

I'm super excited to get started on this hobby. I can hardly wait until I am experienced enough to be able to start up astrophotography.

Anyway, I'll keep this short. Nice to meet you all!

Welcome to SGL Skade  :smiley:

These forums are a great source of advice and information, but going along to a local astronomy society observing session will allow you to get some first hand experience of different telescopes before you buy one (if you haven't already).

You guys are very welcoming here! The other forum I go to (not for astronomy) pretty much ignores newbies until they establish themselves as a regular member! :o

Welcome to SGL, Skade!

What part of Michigan?

Tiger fan?

I'm from around Grand Rapids. From reading your username, I'm guessing you came from Michigan? Troll or yooper? :wink:

But no, I don't watch sports. I did used to like baseball when I was little though!

A Troll, but my sister's a Yooper in Escanaba. I'm from Constantine, south of Kalamazoo. My Mom grew up in GR,though.

Okay that you'e not a fan; at least you're not a Tiger fan! :laugh:
