Hi, this is Will from Texas, near Houston. I was looking for information about my gear and several times ended on this forum, so I've decided to subscribe. I'm an amateur, wannabe astronomer/ astrophotgrapher. I will see how this progress on time. Houston is a polluted spot for stargazing I have to travel 250 miles west to get good dark skies, therefore is limited to once a month. I do some planets observation from my backyard.

Cheers!

Hi, Will, & welcome to SGL.

And I thought my LP was bad! I don't know that I would have the dedication for that sort of travel commitment for this hobby. Kudos.

Hi Will, welcome. 250 miles! Britain feels small when you consider these wide open spaces. In Nevada once a guy told a couple from Wisconsin that in Nevada if you travel 200 miles you're still in Nevada but 200 miles in Wisconsin takes you out of the state. I told them if you travel 200 miles in Wales you're out of the country.
