Welcome is nothing more than a place for Me to ramble on and on about nothing particular.
I will try to update this as often as possible, but we all know what happens when people say that. Check out the help section under the About Me section if you can't figure out what's going on for this page.



Welcome to my astronomy section! Have you ever wondered if we are the only living creatures in all the universe? Wondered if there were other planets out there just like Earth? Well I have always been interested in Astronomy. Ever since I could remember, I have always looked up into the night sky and awed at the moon and stars. After 19 years of my life, I finally had the chance to get really into astronomy with my first purchase of a telescope.

While I was at Costco one day with my friend, I saw a Meade ETX-60AT telescope. It isn't much now that I know more about scopes, but for a beginner, it was perfect! I got a tremendous deal on the scope, $100 flat! They usually sell for around $200 and up. Well I took this baby home and that was the beginning of the end!

After viewing the skies with my new telescope, I started to research and read a little bit more into astronomy. Oh man was that ever a costly mistake! I started to visit telescope stores online and in real life. Ask my friend about going to the store! She'll tell you how boring it is to go there and hear me blab on and on about astronomy!

Well I now have another telescope in addition to the original ETX-60AT that I bought, the ETX-125 with the autostar controller. Instead of the 2" aperture that the 60at offers, the newer ETX-125 offers a 5" aperture. That isn't anything yet! I am now waiting on a newly designer Meade LX-200 GPS 12" telescope! That not only offers much better deep space observing, but it also adds about 70 more pounds to the scope!!! Can you say chiropractor?? Below I have attached a picture of the GPS telescope that I am hoping to get within the next few months! I will definitely post up pictures once I get it!
