Hello from Holland

Recommended Posts

Hello Everbody,

My name is Gert and i am from Holland.
I am into astronomy for 5 years now and started with a bresser Jupiter 70/700 refractor.

At first my interest lay at the Moon and Planets, but after a while Deep Sky got my attention.
That meant another telescope, so now i have a SW 8" Dobson and a SW 130p Flextube.
The 8"dobson opened a whole new world up there!

I like to observe the Messier and NGC objects, i am a great fan of Starcluster.
So thats a little bit about me.

Greetings Gert

Hello Gert.  I have enjoyed visiting Nijmegen a few times!

I too began with a 70mm frac.  Yes, clusters are great, and double and carbon stars can provide much observing pleasure.

Have fun!

Doug.

Welkom bij SGL

I have dutch friends in various places in Nederlands, and have a bit of pigeon Dutch, also been there many times.

This is a friendly and helpful site and we have at least 1 other member from Holland.

Hi Gert, welcome to the Stargazers Lounge.

When aperture fever strikes again, just think what a 12" or larger scope could provide? 
The 12" is just a dream for me at present! The 8" is more manageable  under the present conditions.
