    Greetings! Long time amateur astronomer and participant in astronomy forums going back to when sci.astro.amateur was the place to be, then Astromart forums, etc. Since I felt that the time has come to leave the last astronomy forum that I belonged to for many years, I found this place.

    I've always been more interested in deep sky than lunar/planetary/solar, and have owned telescopes from 2" up to 18", and have come back down the aperture ladder so to speak. Currently I observe 90% of the time with night vision devices at 1x, 5x and in my telescopes.

    Anyway, I'm glad to have found this place. I'm sure that I will find that I know a few folks here.

    Welcome aboard A-C, Doug - it's great to have you join our rather eclectic community! Especially considering your extensive background in web-communities and communications. I, too, cut my teeth on internet-groups all-the-way back to "The Beginning." Or something like it...:eek: :p

    As this forum is really just taking off, you're not just a member - but also a builder, designer, think-tank, and font of wisdom! So please feel free and meet the 'gang' - or 'Usual-Suspects!' :rolleyes:

    Dave


    p.s. - Please give my best regards to that beautiful Dog!

    Thanks folks!

    Dave, I remember "the beginning" too. Things have come a long way since the old bulletin boards.

    Thanks too for the compliment for Aja. She's our 15 year old Shiba Inu who still acts like a puppy.

    Hi Doug
    Sounds like you could give us lessons in astronomy, if you haven't guessed it by reading my posts I don't know nuthin'. What I have figured out is how to spend my retirement.

    Welcome Doug! Very new here as well. Aja's a beautiful dog! Emma(my avatar) will be turning 16 this July. She can act like a puppy at times, but in reality, she has become more and more stubborn in her later years. :)
