I really, really, love astronomy. When I was ten, I went to a restaurant and saw a huge wall mural of the Andromeda Galaxy. At my house, we had a tiny refractor telescope. I knew this wasn't enough, so I bought (with help) an 8 inch Dobsonian reflector. I looked up one time to try to find something to look at and saw something fuzzy- the Orion Nebula. This is when I really got into using my telescope. I still have my Dobsonian, but I am hoping to get a new telescope or an azimuth mount for it. I love taking my telescope anywhere to observe anything!
So whats you're astronomy background?
