I’ve had several hobbies in my lifetime, but none of them have even been as fulfilling as amateur astronomy. I believe that this is mostly attributed to the community of amateur astronomers and the open environment that they create and foster for the sharing of information. I’m grateful to those that have patiently taken the time to teach me and I hope to do my part to pass knowledge to anyone that has an interest in learning. Astronomy is a lifelong learning experience; I look forward to learning more from all of you!
