    Hi all,

    I've owned a Meade 4500 for about 15 years and a no name 10" (maybe)f5.2 for about ten years. I've enjoyed viewing the heavens but know very little about the technical aspects (physics) related to newtonians. I think I can learn a lot here and will probably be asking some basics questions and I'm hoping to learn more about my 10". Here is a pic of my 10".





    Thanks,
    henrylr

    Relax, folks. It's just a telescope.

    And a weed-whacker back in the corner. Don't get the two mixed up.

    Welcome.

    Hello everyone!

    I'm just recently getting into astronomy and found this website. It looks amazing and I'm super excited to be part of something like this, as well as being able to learn as I help out.

    I'm having trouble with the Mars/Moon mapper tools though. Where should I look for help with that?

    Thanks everyone and nice to meet you!

    Welcome.

    I'm not sure where you get answers about those programs. I just come here for the forum. There are some sub-forums where they are lightly discussed, Citizen Science, so it's worth a try there.

    If nothing else, ask again here and someone wiser than I may give you a hand. Somebody will give you a hand.

    If you ask enough somebodies.

    Stay excited!

    Hi,

    Non-professional, but general interest in space and space travel.

    I haven't had good luck at other sites (I tried to register at Apollo Hoax five times - on all five occasions, the application was ignored for days or weeks and then eventually deleted without notice), but it took me about two minutes to register here. So that was a nice change of pace.

    I hope I last longer than the person who made the previous post.

    Cheers

    Hi! Several months lurking on Facebook (as "Wilfred F. Drouin Jr" and hardly active now) and the Google+ circle, a little more vocal in the live YT hangouts I can catch . . . and a recent addition to the Slack group. Decided it was time to join here as well.
    A JOAT (jack of all trades) with current priorities in PC servicing, but a lifelong interest in astronomy and space exploration. Age 55 and a long time resident of rural Georgia, USA.

    Hello all! I am currently 58 years old, retired and bored, interested in astronomy, space exploration, computers, robotics, manufacturing and construction, and much more. While cleaning out some of my old "junk" I came across some notes I made, back when I was running dial-up BBS and AOL for e-mail, for a book about space. Hooking up to the global information network was still SCIFI and watch radio communication was only in comics and everyone would have a hover car by year 2000. Ok some stuff really happened. Back then there were several newsgroups about space, exploration, physics, station design, habitat design. I decided to check out google to see what I could find and this is one of the first I have looked at. Will be reading for a while but would appreciate if someone that has been here for a while could point to threads about manufacturing in space.

    Hello, I'm Alvin, a non-professional. I recently became interested in astronomy and celestial bodies. I've been enthusiastic in reading as I was with the topic of Dinosaurs when I was a child.

    Greetings from Nova Scotia, Canada

    Hello all!

    Just stumbled across this forum after I was trying to find an answer to a question I had regarding the video taken of Apollo 17 departing from the Lunar surface. Found the answer here and thought Id join this forum.

    For as long as I can remember, I have always been obsessed with all things Space, my mother would record all the Shuttle launches on VHS when I was in class and I'd come home and watch them. Wish I knew where all those VHS cassettes have gone to.
    I have gotten to meet Chris Hadfield back in the day, and one of my favorite memories was visiting Flagstaff, Arizona and seeing Meteor Crater. I'm 33 years old and to this day, I'm as enamoured with the universe as I was getting my first telescope as a kid and being able to look at the moon and know that "we were there"
