Hello Everyone

I live in Tamwoth in Staffordshire. I am pretty new to astronomy. I have always really been interested in Spaceflight / Space history (A space baby c'63). Following the lucky chance to see a shuttle launch in Florida 2000 I began trawling NASA sites looking for more info, picked up a couple of books with the sole intention of researching missions past and present. I was then that I began reading more of the astronomy ...

Hello there

Hi everyone,

Although I've been a member of this forum for a while now,I haven't introduced myself yet.I'm 40 yrs old this month and have been interested in astronomy for thirty of those years,since I started observing the night sky with my Grandfather's 10x50 Boots Admiral binoculars,shortly after he bought them during the long hot Summer of 1976.
The poor soul never got to use them very often,as I soon commandeered them for my stargazing.Mind ...

I've been observing for more than 33 years, read astronomy and astrophysics at University and then gave it all up to concentrate on twin careers in IT and music.

A belated hello!

Hi Gang,
My name is John Cave and I come from a town called Huyton in the outskirts of Liverpool. The LP around here isn't too bad and from my observation site in my back garden in is quite dark. I am 45 years old and have been an active astronomer for around 30 years (why do I suddenly feel so old?).
I have found this forum to be a great place to meet like ...
