Rene

Newbie Hello from New Orleans!

Recommended Posts

Just getting into Astronomy. Got a 114mm. computerized Newtonian scope. Been stargazing the southern summer sky. Cant wait till winter down here for better condition. Also looking to get a 12.5" Dobsonian very soon for better light gathering capabilities. Want to move in to direction of astro photogrophy! Using my samsung phone for now...LOL!

 Looking forward to learning alot from this site!

Thanks

Hi Rene, welcome to SGL :)

You'll see plenty with that 12.5" Dob. It's a huge upgrade on a 114!

Hi Rene and welcome to SGL, that is a big move up the scale to the 12.5" Dob, you should enjoy the views. If you eventually want to go in the direction of the dark side (AP) as we affectionately call it, then possibly additional kit will have to be considered. Astronomy is a lovely hobby, but it can hurt your pocket at times, enjoy :)
